  • Title: Chiara da Montefalco [Clare of Montefalco lived as a penitent in her parents' home and then as a nun at Santa Croce di Montefalco. Her visions, reported second-hand, are focused on Jesus, Mary, or the afterlife, reflecting the realistic piety of the Franciscan movement. She anticipated the later emphasis of women's visions on the Passion. Clare, even in her lifetime, began to appear in other women's visions, which are reported by her biographers].
