Franciscan Institute Publications is a leading publisher of books and journals on medieval Franciscan history, sources, spirituality, philosophy and theology as well as contemporary issues on Franciscan life and ministry.

It has published critical editions of the works of John Duns Scotus, William of Ockham, Adam of Wodeham and Peter of John Olivi. Its Works of St. Bonaventure series is now in 15 separate volumes with more volumes in development. Franciscan Institute Publications has collaborated with the English-Speaking Conference of the Order of Friars Minor and the Commission on the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition on two series of Franciscan thought on contemporary issues and topics.

Known for many years for its critical editions of leading medieval Franciscan philosophers and theologians, Franciscan Institute Publications has more recently endeavored to make available to a wider reading public the very best of modern scholarship on the history, spirituality and intellectual tradition of the Franciscan movement. The Works of St. Bonaventure Series is a case in point. The latest on-line version of the FIP catalog reveals a good number of monographs, translations and several new scholarly series that attempt to bridge the medieval and contemporary worlds.

Franciscan Evangelization:

Striving to Preach the Gospel

Editor: Elise Saggau, O.S.F.

The scholarly authors of the essays in this volume probe important facets of preaching and its history in the Franciscan tradition, as well as its import for the larger Church. Insightful and critical, they trace pathways into the future. From their historical perspective, we appreciate, perhaps for the first time, what a creative impulse to preaching Franciscan men and women brought to the service of the Gospel. We see how ordinary Christian people experienced the impulse to unfold the work of God in Christian life. We see, too, the intrinsic ambivalence of the Franciscan tradition in working out its relationship to the role of clerical preaching tin the hierarchical Church. We are invited to enjoy the feast prepared by scholarship and creative, critical thought.

The Franciscan Intellectual Tradition

Tracing Its Origins

Kenan B. Osborne, OFM

The purpose of this book is to present some general and major themes of the theological formulation of the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition as these themes intersect with contemporary perspectives. It provides a fine starting point for further reflection and a solid foundation for future expositions in this series. It is meant to help readers plumb the spiritual depths of our Franciscan inheritance and challenges readers to express these theological themes in preaching, in pastoral practice, in the works of evangelization and in the formative experiences of friars, sisters and the laity.

The Franciscan Intellectual Tradition

Washington Theological Union Symposium Papers, 2001

Ediotr Elise Saggau, OSF

Franciscan scholars of the 1950s and 1960s sparked a vibrant revival of first-rate Franciscan scholarship. For the past forty years, their progeny have worked long and hard and have further probed, developed, translated, and made available deeper riches of this ancient, yet fertile tradition. This exploring of the past in light of the contemporary has established a launching pad for what might well be described as a third generation of Franciscan studies. The scholarship in this volume represents an array of gifted North American thinkers who continue the important task of bringing historical knowledge, critical acumen and theological imagination to a dialogue of the past with our contemporary age.

A Franciscan View of Creation

Learning to Live in a Sacramental World

Ilia Delio

The purpose of this book is to elucidate in greater detail the theology of creation as a foundational starting point for contemporary belief and practices. The centrality in our faith tradition of the relationship between the Creator and all of creation and the reflection of the Trinity's glory in everything is undergoing a renaissance in our twenty-first century world. This book provides a fine stimulus for further reflection on this view, so fundamental to the spiritual vision of Francis and Clare. Dr. Delio here traces teh theme of God and creation from the time of the conversion of Francis through the first century of Franciscan life and thought, which culminated in the work of John Duns Scotus.

The Franciscan View of the Human Person

Some Central Elements

Dawn M. Nothwehr

This brief volume discusses several of the central elements of human person as found in those works of the Franciscan theological tradition which, when taken together, most sufficiently describe these qualities. As the tradition developed over the years, the intuitions and insights of St., Francis and St. Clarie of Assisi concerning the human person were developed and/or restated in language better understood by the people of a particular era. Two of the most famous early Franciscan theologians, Bonaventure and John Duns Scotus, did just that. This volume will, by drawing on the wisdom on the Franciscan tradition, contribute in a similar way to an understanding of the human person today.

Franciscan Wealth

From Voluntary Poverty to Market Society

Giacomo Todeschini

Originally published in Italian in 2004, Todeschini's studies highlight the relationship between the development of the Franciscan movement and medieval economic thinking and practice. While not the "first economists" the early Franciscans approached the marketplace out of their rigorous Christian religiosity and showed clearly the necessary connection between morality and business.
