Nuovi contributi documentari sugli inizi del movimento clariano

"The history of the Franciscan female only knows two variants: the first is that of the Franciscan tradition with stories about Francis, who founded convents and monasteries ... The second is the modern version, which is the central unifying power of Ugolino: he would have destroyed the voluntary initiatives of women , forcing them into seclusion ... I am for a historiography in which the sisters - who are poor or rich, or related to Chiara Ugolino - are at the center. I absolutely preferred sources that bring words of the sisters. In a second step is to consider other sources. Comparing these sources may emerge coincidences, differences and "cross-links", in other words, it becomes possible to make history".
