The Life of Saint Margaret of Cortona

translated by Thomas Renna and Shannon Larson

Saint Margaret of Cortona is the light of the Third Order of Francis. Such is the theme of the most extensive biography of any Franciscan Tertiary in the Middle Ages. Margaret’s extraordinary career brings the historian closer to the early development of the Franciscans and the Order of Penance; it tells us much about how women saints were described, and about how civic cults of saints emerged. Another window, although a smaller one, opens to the tensions between the Franciscan Community and the Spiritual Franciscans before the split prior to Pope John XXII. Indeed it could be said that we know more about Margaret of Cortona than about any woman of thirteenth-century Italy, with the exception of Clare of Assisi and Clare of Montefalco. This edition is translated from the critical Latin edition by Fortunato Iozzelli, O.F.M. of The Life of Saint Margaret of Cortona by Fra Giunta Bevegnati. The original translation by Thomas Renna has been edited by Shannon Larson.

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.
