La leggenda sconosciuta di Tommaso da Celano
A manuscript is being auctioned in the United States: a scholar of Franciscan history come to know and understands the priceless value of that little code so shabby, threadbare and totally unknown to date.
his intuition is confirmed by further study: the manuscript is the only witness to come down to us of a "Life of Blessed Francis" written by biographer Thomas Celano in the decade 1230-1240.
This is the first life written expressly for the friars, on the orders of their Minister General, Brother Elias, beloved companion of Francis. These pages present the Italian translation of a text that, almost eight hundred years after its completion, has lost none of its charm and its freshness, offering us a new face of the Poverello of Assisi, a surprisingly contemporary.
