The patron saint of animals and founder of the Franciscan Order, Francis of Assisi is venerated by Christians and non-Christians alike. Saint Francis earned the devotion of his thirteenth-century contemporaries and later generations through his famous acts of humility, kindness and piety. First printed in 1476, this collection of stories, or "little flowers," chronicles Saint Francis of Assisi's journeys, activities, and miracles. Told in brief anecdotes of charming simplicity, the stories include Saint Francis' sermon to the birds, his taming of the savage wolf of Gubbio, his conversion of the Sultan of Babylon, and his miraculous healing of a leper. Picturesque and poetic, The Little Flowers of Saint Francis transports readers to the Middle Ages for an inspiring portrait of the saint and his earliest disciples. One of the world's most popular and widely read religious classics, its universal appeal extends to people of every intellectual level.
