  • Title: Francescanesimo al femminile: Chiara d’Assisi ed Eustochia da Messina [Franciscan hagiography described Francis as "another Christ" and Clare as "another Mary." These hagiographers saw Mary’s role as active, not passive. An early copy of Clare’s Rule ties her to Eustochia of Messina, an outstanding 15th century follower of that Rule. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
