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.

On the Reduction of the Arts to Theology

Zacharry Hayes

In his treatise, De Reductione Artium ad Thologiam, a work of remarkable brevity and originatlity of expression, St. Bonaventure deals with the relation of the finite to the infinite, of the natural to the supernatural in a way which well establishes his reeminence as a mystic, a philosopher, and a theogian. This translation and commentary brings to the modern day reader an appreciation of the return of all created things to God.

Poverty and Prosperity:

Franciscans and the Use of Money

Editor: Daria Mitchell, O.S.F.

As the papers in this volume demonstrate, Franciscan poverty has and continues to develop and to elicit new forms in the life of the Church. This 2009 Symposium has raised many important questions and possibilities as to how Franciscans can and should use money that will be valuable for the Franciscan family to consider. Even so, the issues relating to prosperity still need further consideration. When one studies the history of the divisions of the Franciscan communities, it seems that they arise out of prosperity rather than poverty. How Franciscans respond to prosperity seems to play a significant role in how Franciscans respond to each other.

Respectfully Yours: Signed and Sealed, Francis of Assisi

Aspects of His Authorship and Focuses of His Spirituality

Through a meticulous reading of his writing, one can discover Francis the Mystic. The authors pay full attention to what Francis has to say and pay special attention to texts from the liturgy of Francis’s time. It is undeniable that at least some of his texts were subject to deliberate composition techniques. By bringing these to light, the "coordinates" or "power lines" of his spirituality become visible.
