Leaving behind his wayward youth, the visionary and mystic Francesco Bernardone (1181-1226) embraced a life of utter poverty and, near the end of his life, received the stigmata -- the marks of Christ's passion -- on his body. He changed water into wine, preached to the birds, cured countless cripples and wrestled with devils. Or did he?

This new translation of the work of St. Francis's friend and disciple -- Thomas of Celano -- is the earliest and most reliable account of a truly extraordinary man, from the early teachings of St. Francis to his canonization and miracles. Christopher Stace provides a full introduction that describes Thomas of Celano and his relationship with the saintly man, as well as a survey of other biographical writings about St. Francis.
