A Mended and Broken Heart: The Life and Love of Francis of Assisi

A few reflections:

(1) That Francis was once a fine looking guy, as steered by way of the author,was rarely the case. we have now modern pics of Francis displaying another way in addition to descriptions of his contemporaries corresponding to Thomas of Celano;

(2) That Francis was once a womanizer, back prompt via the writer, is uncertain. there's no facts in any respect of this. In thirteenth Century Assisi, any such small city, it can were prohibitied until the writer is suggesting Francis visited homes of prostitution. there isn't any checklist of this in any respect. the writer is placing her twenty first Century inklings into the thirteenth Century;

(3) there's no indication in any respect that Francis had any romantic feelings
toward Claire of Assisi. historical past is totally silent in this factor. the writer is correct referring to Francis' and his love of Arthurian legends.
As a question of historical past, the belief of chivalric love prohibited sexual touch. woman Poverty was once simply that - a component of his mystical lifestyles. And certainly the age distinction is suspect - Francis used to be nearly 30 whilst he switched over to the magical existence - Claire turning 14 - 15;

(4) definite, Francis did visit battle. the writer says he was once a "warrior. "
Such a observe indicates a life-style which can rarely painting the Francis of Assisi of historic list. definite, he went to conflict yet we haven't any notion of what he did. He can have killed or he might have been nursing the wounded in his first conflict. we do not comprehend. We do be aware of he used to be attempting to satisfy his father's aspirations whilst he armored as much as pass at the Cursades. This enterprise, we all know, was once interrupted by way of a paranormal occasion for Francis. He grew to become again and have become a knight of his Lord - the magical Christ who ultimately spoke to him at Daniano. used to be he then a "failed knight? " as recommended by way of the writer. Francis inspiration differently. the matter right here seems to be the author's loss of spiritual intuition which might make such occasions incomprehensible. If something might be acknowledged approximately Francis at this juncture is that he did not dwell as much as his father's needs - a failed son instead of a failed knight. the connection among Francis and his father is a gold mine that merits mental scrutiny - to make sure a Freudian could come to another end than a Jungian.

(5)The writer contends that he created friendship with the Muslims. hugely exagerated. Francis used to be a medieval guy and probably suggestion as such a lot medieval Christians the idea of the hugely influential Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, the 1st preacher of the Crusades a century past. Bernard acknowledged "to kill a Muslim isn't to devote homocide. " Francis faced the Sultan in the course of the Crusades. at the moment he justified the killing going as being worthy until eventually the Muslims accredited the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On his go back from the Crusades he not just didn't pontificate opposed to the Crusades yet his Order, the Franciscans, have been ordered by way of the Pope to evangelise the Crusades. during this means, they went from city to city to elevate males, cash and fabric for the Crusades. Had it now not been for the Franciscans the Crusades couldn't have occurred in that century. No objections from the founder here;

There are many strong books on Saint Francis. this isn't one in all them. the writer lacks the spirit of the age, the non secular intuition that may understand what the actors are facing. i'm sorry to assert this isn't solid heritage. it really is sloppy historical past reflecting the sentiments of the current into the earlier. Of the prospective 5 stars I remove 3 for wish of heritage yet provide it one megastar for the canopy and one famous person for the paper it truly is written on. Why punish the blameless no matter if inanimate?
