The Life and Legends of Saint Francis of Assisi


Candide Chalippe

Series: Religion and Spirituality, Historical Figures
BISAC: REL010000

The Life and Legends of St. Francis of Assisi by Father Candide Chalippe, O.F.M., was first published in Paris in 1727. It is not only well written and reliable but also instructive, elevating, and inspiring. The facts and legends mentioned are drawn from the oldest and most reliable sources known at the time of writing. The abundance of incidents and anecdotes not to be found elsewhere make the volume eminently interesting, while the reflections and applications that the author now and then interweaves with the narrative are so replete with practical hints on spiritual life that they will undoubtedly produce the best spiritual results in the reader. The style, though simple and at times graphic, is very pleasing; the narrative flows on with equal ease and freedom.
