Item description for Jacopone da Todi: The Lauds (Classics of Western Spirituality) by Jacopone, Serge Huges & Elizabeth Hughes...

Overview
Jacopone da Todi c. (1230-1306) entered the Order of Friars Minor during the last quarter of the thirteenth century when the conflict between the Franciscan Conventuals and Spirituals was raging. His lauds, which long have had an established place in the history of Italian poetry, sing the praises of poverty, insist on the supremacy of the love of God above all other loves, and inveigh against the worldliness of the Church under the reign of Pope Boniface VIII. In this volume, Serge and Elizabeth Hughes have given us a fresh, highly-readable rendition of Jacopone's poetry. Writing in the introduction to this book, Professor Serge Hughes describes Jacopone's significance for today: " We continue to turn to this work after seven centuries...because of the intensities of Jacopone-his descent into the self and his search for and struggle with God."

Reviews - What do customers think about Jacopone da Todi: The Lauds (Classics of Western Spirituality)?

Nice collection of the translated Lauds of da Todi  Jul 4, 2006
This is a nice collection of the tranlated lauds of Jacopone da Todi, a Franciscan Friar. What is interesting about this corpus is that one can approach the work of da Todi from that of a historical perspective relating the lauds to a historical analysis of either the social setting or the history of the Church - and more specifically, the Franciscan Order - or one can look at the lauds as a literary work of inspired prose.

In either case, this is a reasonably priced and a significant work that is nice to have on the bookshelf. I recommend it highly.
