On this Blog, you will find a series of short publications, meditations, considerations from and news regarding The Franciscan Archive.

For the curious:  Our Header image consists of a photo of the Basilica of St. Francis, taken by Br. Alexis Bugnolo during his pilgrimage there in 2010.  On the Left is the official logo of The Franciscan Archive, which depicts a Friar copying manuscripts; the image is an etching published by LaCroix in the 1880’s, based on a miniature from the 15th century.  On the Right: is a detail from an illuminated manuscript, Harley 3229 f. 26, in the British Library, which depicts St. Bonaventure writing his life of St. Francis (the Legenda Maior), visited by St. Thomas Aquinas, who is saying, “Let us leave a Saint write about a Saint”.
