Riflessioni storiche sulla spogliazione del Povero di Assisi

II edizione - Postfazione di André Vauchez

The public manifestation of his nakedness returns in at least three important episodes of the life of St. Francis: in Rome in the churchyard of St. Peter, in Assisi in front of the city authorities, and in the Porziuncola, at the time of death.
Stripping constitutes one of the most fascinating and least studied keys to the personal life of the saint of Assisi.
From this observation this book was born, received with interest and curiosity.

Once the first edition is finished, a second one is proposed, enriched by a bibliography reasoned on the topic and by a Postface by the famous medieval historian André Vauchez.

Marco BARTOLI associate professor of medieval history at the LUMSA of Rome, disciple of Raoul Manselli, is a specialist in the history of thought and religious life of the last centuries of the Western Middle Ages, in particular it is known for the numerous publications on Chiara and Francesco d'Assisi .

André VAUCHEZ the greatest living scholar of medieval history, formerly a professor at the Universities of Rouen and Paris, author of now classic poubblications on holiness and medieval spirituality
