Title : Le fonti agiografiche come documenti per la vita di Chiara [Sources for Clare's life are scarce; these include her writings, acts of her canonization process, and her earliest legend; this text, often attributed to Thomas of Celano, can be checked against the testimony in the canonization process; and it represents a moment in the history of the Franciscan movement; individual details, present in recorded testimony, become adapted to hagiographic models in the legend and, even more so, in papal bulls concerning the canonization; the legend emphasizes Clare's love of poverty, but her confrontation with Gregory IX over a life of poverty is deemphasized; the Franciscans had become institutionalized and could not present Clare as a rebel].

Title : Le Clarisse nelle Marche gli insediamenti del XIII secolo [Houses of Poor Clares began appearing in the March of Ancona by the middle of the thirteenth century.

Houses of Clares spred in the March early on, often developing in larger towns that also had nearby convents of friars to provide for their spiritual care. Title note provided by Feminae.].
