1 Martin, Valerie Salvation: Scenes from the Life of St. Francis
0375409831 / 9780375409837; NEW - Inspired by the fresco cycles that depict the life of St. Francis of Assisi, Valerie Martin tells the life of Francesco di Pietro Bernadone in a series of vividly realized "panels" of moments both ordinary and crucial: On the road, in the company of friends, alone in his meditations. She draws from myriad sources, including Francesco's own words, and has arranged these scenes thematically, in the manner of the early hagiographies, moving roughly backward in time. Salvation is at once a window into a medieval world whose physicality and purity have never been rendered with such visceral power, and a dazzlingly original portrait of the man whose legend has resonated through the centuries. Includes a bibliography and endnotes. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
