  • Title: Filippa Mareri e Chiara d'Assisi [Filippa Mareri, a noblewoman, tried being a bride of Christ in her parents' castle, and then she became an anchoress. Eventually she and her followers became Poor Clares. Unlike Clare, Filippa did not know Francis, and she acted more as a dominant lady and less as a sister to her nuns, as Clare had done].
