Description

With the present study the Author shows that the Legenda sanctae Clarae virginis is the work of Tommaso of Celano, the hagiographer par excellence of Francis of Assisi. At the end of the 15th century Battista Alfani da Perugia, a nun of the Order of St Clare, was the first to maintain this attribution to Tommaso which until now has only been considered an hypothesis. Alfani’s assertion is now confirmed by the Author’s critical work by means of a detailed comparison – on a lexical and stylistic basis – of the Legenda and the process and letter of canonization of St Clare with the genuine works of Tommaso of Celano.
