Clare of Assisi: Early Documents
The Lady (Revised Edition)
Revised Edition and Translation by Regis J. Armstrong, O.F.M. Cap.
"If Francis was the external manifestation of a new Gospel spirituality, Clare was its perfect internal manifestation. She lived secretly what he lived openly. Now some of the secrets are being revealed in this wonderful collection. What a gift to history!"
Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.
Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
"This volume takes a big step toward making Clare and her story accessible to a wide audience. General readers and those meeting Clare for the first time will be able to see her story unfold in its chronological sequence beginning with the voice of Clare in her writings. Poor Clares will want this volume especially for its revised translations of Clare's Letters and Form of Life."
