Inhaltsangabe: This book was first published in French as Francois d'Assise ou le pouvoir en question in the series Biliotheque du Moyen Age. It was, in the author's own words, the third volume of Jacques Dalarun's Franciscan trilogy. After publishing The Misadventure of Francis of Assisi in 2002, and Francis of Assisi and the Feminine in 2006, Franciscan Institute Publications now has the pleasure to publish the third title in the trilogy, Francis of Assisi and Power.
In this provocative presentation, it is not the question of poverty that holds center stage as the cause of the controversies within the early Franciscan fraternity. Rather, paradoxically, it is the question of Francis's humility. Indeed, our author contends that the turmoil that arose over the question of power and authority in the Order after the death of Francis is actually rooted in Francis's own struggles with the very same question and the fact that he never resolved it during his own lifetime, neither within himself nor within the Order that he founded.
