The Crucifix of San Damiano was studied to the smallest detail, creating possible paths or even imaginary. This book is an invitation to a different interpretation, on solid historical and hagiographic bases.
Any study on the San Damiano cross can not take that boot from Saint Francis. Although not lack stories of visions, or miracles of images that come alive and also speak before the saint of Assisi, the interview with Francis Christ of S. Damiano retains a unique character; the crucifix that spoke to Francis starts from that moment a new story that weaves devotion, spirituality and hagiography to become, in times closer to us, very image of Francis and the Franciscan order.
The crucifix that spoke to Francis speaks to us of Francis.
