Of the thousands upon thousands of books about Saint Francis, perhaps the best is Francis of Assisi by Arnaldo Fortini. It first appeared in four volumes. A lawyer and native of Assisi, Fortini spent thirty years on this biography. It is now in one volume, brilliantly translated by Helen Moak, with valuable notes of her own and a bibliography of some seven hundred and fifty items. My book leans heavily upon their portrait of the many-sided saint and his times.

Arnaldo Fortini, two-time mayor of Assisi, in his Francis of Assisi, (translated by Helen Moak, Crossroad, 1981), was the first to use the civil records of Assisi to cast light upon the life of Francis. I recommend the works of an English scholar, John Moorman: St. Francis of Assisi (SPCK, 1963) and The Spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi (Our Sunday Visitor, 1977). Erik Doyle’s St. Francis and the Song of Brotherhood (Seabury, 1981) contains excellent material on Francis and ecology.

Booklist calls this massively monumental, yet readable biography of Saint Francis of Assisi, "a classic vita". Helen Moak's translation of this masterpiece is excellent as it includes the "scenic details from the late 12th to early 13th century Umbria that Fortini knows so astonishingly well".--Best Sellers.

The book arrived in great condition.

The book itself, however, is a bit of a slog. Not an easy read. Reads more like a translated Decamerone or Oralando Furioso. I'm not sure if this is due to the translator or the original text or both, once I read the original in Italian I will be able to determine same. I did feel like massage the English and modernizing some of the turn of phrase as I read this. Great book if you want interesting background data around the backdrop into which Francesco was born.

The scholarship in this book is both notable and engaging. The first few chapters introduce the reader to the techniques used to uncover what life was like in the times of St. Francis and how historians separate fact from inflated. The rest is an engaging biography filled with historical context that makes 13th century Umbria come alive.
