By Brother Ugolino

Since they were first compiled by Brother Ugolino Boniscambi (ca. 1260 - ca. 1345), these stories of St. Francis and his first followers have motivated people to become better followers of Jesus. For that reason, they have endured unlike any other early Franciscan literature. Many of the stories are known to us from other biographical sources, but in some cases, here they are expanded or made more vivid.

This unique edition is introduced, arranged in the most likely chronological order, and rendered into contemporary English by Jon M. Sweeney. As a result, today's reader is now able to read The Little Flowers as a biographical narrative of the life of St. Francis and the world-transforming movement that he founded.
