  • Title: Riscritture agiografiche: le due "legendae" latine di Margherita da Città di Castello [the legends of saints frequently were reworked; that of the Dominican tertiary Margaret of Citta di Castello went through two Latin versions before being redone in Italian by Tommaso Caffarini; one Latin legend emphasizes parallels between Margaret's life and the life of Christ in the Franciscan tradition of Francis as "Alter Christus;" this made her a more universal figure, and Caffarini built his Italian legend on this vision of Margaret's life; the shorter Latin legend emphasizes Margaret's ties with the Dominican order and her local context].
