The Complete Francis of Assisi (paperback)

Edited, Translated & Introduced
by Jon M. Sweeney

There are many editions of the writings of Francis, and biographies about him, but here in one volume are both, plus the complete text of the late medieval work The Little Flowers, which did more to establish the legend of Francis than any other work.

Includes the complete Road to Assisi, Paul Sabatier's groundbreaking biography of Francis; the complete Francis in His Own Words: The Essential Writings; and The Little Flowers, thus offering the best introduction to St. Francis yet available. Paperback, 399 pages, 6" x 9"

"It is not simply that Francis's ideals are worth recounting, but that his life was so extraordinary. He was fully human—like each of us in our awkwardness, insecurities, and fear—but he was also perhaps the purest example we have seen of a person striving to do what Jesus taught his disciples."
—Jon M. Sweeney, from this book

The Book of Kells: An Illustrated Introduction (paperback) NEW! 

An Illustrated Introduction

The Book of Kells is a masterpiece of medieval art-a brilliantly decorated version of the four Gospels with full-page depictions of Christ, the Virgin, and the Evangelists, as well as a wealth of smaller decorative painting. The strange imagination displayed in the pages, the impeccable technique, and the very fine state of preservation make The Book of Kells an object of endless fascination.

This edition reproduces the most important of the fully decorated pages plus a series of enlargements showing the almost unbelievable minuteness of the detail; spiral and interlaced patterns, human and animal ornament-a combination of high seriousness and humor. The text is by Bernard Meehan, the Keeper of Manuscripts at Trinity College, Dublin.

Paperback, 110 color illustrations, 96 pages, 7-1/2" x 9-3/4"
