The Story of Saint Francis of Assisi

Full Product Description

This beautiful new book by renowned art historian Timothy Verdon tells the story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi in story and art. The 28 stunning thirteenth-century frescoes by Giotto that cover the walls of the famous Basilica in Assisi named for the saint are reproduced in full color, together with a schematic drawing showing their placement in the church. Through detailed descriptions and illuminating commentary on each of the famous frescoes, Verdon tells the story of Francis's extraordinary life, allowing today's reader the opportunity to "read" the art on those walls in the same way that a medieval Christian might have done.

The Story of Saint Francis of Assisi by Timothy Verdon was published by Paraclete Press in October 2015. The ISBN for The Story of Saint Francis of Assisi is 9781612616858.
