Description

The revised title of this WIFIT session better expresses the range of papers accepted to this session. Presenters will examine texts written by and about Clare of Assisi, Angela of Foligno and Caterina Vigri, three medieval Franciscan women who participated in creating, practicing and interpreting theologies within the Franciscan tradition. This session, co-sponsored by the Franciscan Institute, will invite dialogue with both the Franciscan Institute’s sponsored session on Vernacular Theology and with WIFIT’s sponsored session examining two medieval vitae about Margherita Colonna. Our goal is to open up comparative discussion, across chronological, geographical and status differences, to expand our understanding of women and religious teaching and practice within the Franciscan tradition.
