St. Francis of Assisi and the Thirteenth Century

A six-week summer seminar in Rome, Siena, and Assisi, Italy, for college teachers to study the life, works, and representations of St. Francis of Assisi.

The seminar will meet for six weeks in Rome, Siena, and Assisi, Italy. Participants will all examine primary sources for the life of St. Francis and his influence in the thirteenth century; selected scholarly literature, especially biographical literature concerning St. Francis; and the major 13th-century works of art that narrate the life of Francis. There will be several focused site visits, and participants will have access to the most important Franciscan and art history libraries. Each applicant will be expected to propose a research project and/or plan to develop a new or revised college course or section of a course.
