What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A fascinating trip through American cultural history. St. Francis is a wonderful way to see how popular and elite are deftly interwoven into the life-worlds of actual people. A welcome scrutiny of the literary and material culture surrounding a figure who is able to inspire reformers, moralists, and consumers alike. There is no other study of Francis like this one.—David Morgan, author of The Embodied Eye: Religious Visual Culture and the Social Life of Feeling
