New Book series: Studies in Early Franciscan Sources

Franciscan Institute Publications has launched a new book series called Studies in Early Franciscan Sources with the publication of three titles:

The Writings of Francis – Letters and Prayers
The Writings of Francis – Rules, Testament and Admonitions
The Writings of Clare – Letters, Form of Live, Testament and Blessing

Three of the world’s top scholars in medieval and Franciscan studies are editing this series. They are Michael J. Blastic, Jay M. Hammond, and Wayne Hellmann. In addition to their own commentaries, they have assembled an impressive list of commentaries on the Early Documents of Francis and Clare from other top scholars, including Luigi Pellegrini, Cap., Jean-Fran├žois Godet-Calogeras, Michael F. Cusato, Laurent Gallant, William J. Short, Ingrid Peterson, and Lezlie Knox. These commentaries will become “must have” reading for any scholar, student or interested lay person in the Early Documents of Francis and of Clare.
