Description

This session proposes to explore the variety of devotions to various saints that Franciscan women--vowed and lay--cultivated and expressed through pious practices, speech, and writing as documented in hagiography, canonization testimonies, and other sources. By focusing on the piety around particular saints of these women, this session will allow a deep focus on how saints motivated and inspired Franciscan women who in turn worked with their preferred saints, even manipulating their reputations to build on the saints' traditions and images.
