The Adventure of a Poor Knight of Christ. Saint Francis

Franco Cardini



Son, saint, poet, knight, reformer. St. Francis was all this and much more: undoubtedly the greatest religious and spiritual figure in Italian history. As in a kaleidoscope, his life allows us to better understand the men and women of the Middle Ages.
Countless studies, biographies, novels, films have been dedicated to St. Francis and his adventurous life. Yet no one has ever recounted his life as part of an epic and chivalrous cycle, as the great historian Franco Cardini does in this book. A book with a new and original interpretation that will really get people talking.
