Marco Bartoli — Book 153 pgs.
Publisher: St. Anthony Messenger Press (2010)
Clare was not Francis silent shadow nor was she a nun buried in the enclosure of a monastery. Bartoli restores the true relationship of Clare and Francis, the poor sister and the lesser brother, so close to one another in their evangelical life, and yet so different in their personalities. With Bartoli's book, the true Clare emerges. — Jean François Godet-Calogeras, The Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure

Medieval scholar Marco Bartoli, as translated by Clare scholar Sister Frances Teresa Downing, reconstructs the charismatic personality of Clare of Assisi, a great medieval figure whose voice has been heard through the ages. Bartoli explores what has been said about Clare and what has not been said, between evidence and interpretation, between silence and memory, using the most important source for knowing Clare, the Legenda sanctae Clarae virginis (The Legend of Saint Clare the Virgin), written by order of the pope on the occasion of Clare's canonization.
