The Road to Siena

Full Product Description

Meet the 14th century woman who fed the poor, challenged bishops and kings, and perhaps even saved the papacy. Catherine of Siena's influence was felt throughout the kingdoms of Europe. She enjoyed the confidence of popes, royalty, and most of all, the common people of Italy. A complicated woman, she was able to speak bluntly to a queen: "Instead of a woman, you have become the servant and slave of nothingness, making yourself the subject of lies and of the demon who is their father"; and also encourage the wife of a simple tailor: "Clothe yourself in the royal virtues." Her story is told in this landmark biography, first published a century ago and praised by Evelyn Underhill as the best modern biography of a saint ever written. Long out of print, this new edition has been slightly abridged and generously supplemented with the reflections of other biographers, historians, and artists-who shed fresh light on what we know about an amazing woman.

The Road to Siena by Edmund Garratt Gardner was published by Paraclete Press in July 2009 and is our 58494th best seller. The ISBN for The Road to Siena is 9781557256218.
