St. Francis chose and elaborated several Bible verses to help his companions better understand Christ's suffering. This text is illustrated by Pietro Lorenzetti's 14th century fresco cycle (found in the Lower Basilica of the Basilica of St. Francis), by Assisi's traditional Good Friday Procession, and by various places in and around Assisi. The Passion of Christ: According to St. Francis of Assisi includes two more programs: The Canticle of the Creatures, considered one of the most ancient texts in Italian literature, written at a time when Latin was slowly becoming Italian. And The Testament of St. Francis, the work of a man who, in his final days, was anxious about the future of his order and wanted to state his positions one more time as forcefully as possible. Approx. 30 minutes total. Languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German
