Construzione di un' agiografia femminile fra XIII e XIV secolo [Umiliata dei Cerchi no longer is believed to have founded the Franciscan third order, but she was among its first members; her biography, Vito da Cortona, had to adapt hagiographic models since she had been married and widowed; Umiliata is described as preaching but by example rather than by words].
