First Encounter with Francis of Assisi

First Encounter with Francis of Assisi By Damen Vorreux (Author), Jean-Francois Godet-Calogeras (Editor), Ph.D. (Editor)
2012 | 113 Pages | ISBN: 1576593371 | PDF | 1 MB


Damien Vorreux, who died in 1988, was a French scholar who began to publish French translations of the early Franciscan documents in the early 1950s. His deep knowledge of those documents and his understanding of Francis were the inspiration for this classic presentation of Francis of Assisi/. Published in French in 1973 and first offered in English by Franciscan Press, Jean-Francois Godet-Calogeras - who worked with Vorreux in Paris - combines the latest scholarship and the most current English translation of the Early Documents with his own translation of the writings of Francis in offering this new edition of First Encounter with Francis of Assisi. This shot text is an excellent introduction to Francis and the world in which he lived.
