Product Description

This beautiful new book by renowned art historian Timothy Verdon tells the story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi in story and art. The 28 stunning thirteenthcentury frescoes by Giotto that cover the walls of the famous Basilica in Assisi named for the saint are reproduced in full color, together with a schematic drawing showing their placement in the church. Through detailed descriptions and illuminating commentary on each of the famous frescoes, Verdon tells the story of Francis's extraordinary life, allowing today's reader the opportunity to "read" the art on those walls in the same way that a medieval Christian might have done.

Editorial Reviews

Our focus at Image is on contemporary art, but we’re also traditionalists. So I love that Paraclete Press is in cahoots with the great art historian, Monsignor Timothy Verdon, on books, tours, and beyond. His latest is The Story of St. Francis of Assisi, a lucid explication of the fresco cycle in the basilica there (Giotto et al.). —Gregory Wolfe, Image Journal
