Publishers Description
Within two years after the death of Francis of Assisi, Thomas of Celano composed The Life of Saint Francis of Assisi, a portrait of the newly canonized Umbrian: a saint who easily met all the criteria needed for canonization and walked in the footsteps of Martin, Benedict, Bernard, Malachy, and so many others. Less than twenty years later, Thomas used his literary skills once more. In many ways, The Remembrance of the Desire of a Soul, his second portrait of Francis, exceeded his first as the friar unleashed his poetic powers to capture the wonder and especially the uniqueness of the saints life and vision. Hardly had this work become known, when Thomas composed a comprehensive, orderly view of Franciss miracles, The Treatise on the Miracles. The three classic works appear here for the first time in one volume. Thomas of Celano's early literary portraits of Francis bring us into intimate contact with the Poor Man of Assisi. These works exhibit that rare combination of charm and profundity. Every lover of Francis will treasure this volume. Lawrence S. Cunningham John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology The University of Notre Dame

Reviews - What do customers think about Francis Trilogy: The Life of Saint Francis?

Fabulous!  May 16, 2009
I loved this book! So many great details about St. Francis: his humility, holiness and deep devotion. A must read for anyone who loves reading "the Saints" of history.
For Those Who Want to Know St. Francis  Mar 27, 2009
It is true that those who know the saints best are those who lived with them or observed them first hand. Thomas of Celano was one who knew St. Francis and was commissioned to write a book about him two years after his death. This trilogy is a marvelous summation of the saints life by one who actually knew him.
