summary
Ingrid Peterson, O.S.F., is distinguished in the field of franciscan studies by her work on Clare of Assisi and the women of the early franciscan movement. This book, a collection of essays on those topics by several of the best scholars in the field, is offered in tribute to Peterson and her academic and scholarly contributions to the study of Clare and the women of the early movement. Divided into four parts, part one introduces Peterson, part two takes us into the heart of studies of franciscan women, part three focuses on how Peterson came to the study of medieval history and the volume concludes with Peterson’s own summation of what she leaves for us to do in this field.
