Tommaso da Celano, biographer of Saint Francis
This essay is a broad analysis of the book by R. Michetti, Francesco d’Assisi e il paradosso della minoritas. La Vita beati Francisci di Tommaso da Celano, Istituto Storico per il Medio Evo, Roma 2004, which aims at taking a closer look on the independent perspective of the biographer from the instructions of Pope Gregorio IX, patron of the biography, and at examining the message of Tommaso, through a number of hints, to his fellows, that is the more cultured friars, to underscore the essence of the original Franciscan message.
