Description

Around the year 1200 Francis and Clare were born in Assisi, Italy. A special future awaited them. Although both were born into wealthy families, they instead chose lives of poverty. Francis preached to both people and animals throughout the towns and villages, while Clare cared for the sick in the convent of San Damiano. Both gave a joyful face to the spirituality of the Middle Ages and set an example that lives on even today.

Here the story of Clare and Francis is told in simple words and illustrated through striking, luminous images adorned with gold. Opening with a short chronological biography accompanied by miniatures and closing with Francis’s “Canticle of Brother Sun,” this inspiring book will bring the tale of Assisi’s two great saints to life for readers everywhere.
