Title : La minorita in Chiara d'Assisi [The Poor Clares occasionally were called "minorite" sisters in early thirteenth-century texts. Gregory IX, however, restricted the term to Franciscan males, and he denied the Clares use of a version of the Franciscan habit. Clare herself seems to have preferred to call her community the "poor sisters." Many later Francscian women, including some of the order's saints, did not have the foundress' sense of being lowly and subordinate to all. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Filippa Mareri e Chiara d'Assisi [Filippa Mareri, a noblewoman, tried being a bride of Christ in her parents' castle, and then she became an anchoress. Eventually she and her followers became Poor Clares. Unlike Clare, Filippa did not know Francis, and she acted more as a dominant lady and less as a sister to her nuns, as Clare had done].

Title : Imitatio Christi or "Imitatio Mariae"?

Title : La "Forma Vitae" di san Francesco per San damiano fra Chiara d'Assisi, Agnese di Boemia ed interventi papali [The rule of Agnes' monastery in Prague evolved through correspondence with Francis and Clare, as well as with Pope Gregory IX; finally Gregory imposed on her foundation the same constitutions prepared for San Damiano, Assisi; the dietary rigor of these constitutions was moderated by Innocent IV; all of this can be seen as part of a process of regularizing new orders along the lines of preexisting ones].

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].

Author(s): Alberzoni, Maria Pia.
Title : San Damiano nel 1228 Contributo alla "Questione Clariana" [The privilege of poverty supposedly granted to Clare of Assisi by Pope Innocent III has been doubted by recent scholars. Gregory IX pressed Clare and her sisters to become like traditional nuns, which Clare resisted as far as she could. We can discern this resistance behind papal documents and Franciscan hagiography, both of which emphasize the creation of an order of San Damiano under the aegis of Saint Francis.

Title : Ideologia, creatività e iconografia nella Chiara di Liliana Cavani [Cavani's representation of Francis and Clare sets them in opposition to medieval hierarchies; she also, contrary to mystical theology, emphasizes Clare's individuality; the film does this, in part by eliminating the miraculous and legendary; Cavani uses Clare to represent the modern world disrupting medieval structures].

Title : Chiara di Assisi: Assisi, 15-17 ottobre 1992 [Clare's vocation was closely tied to the mission of Francis; her order of nuns started with a Franciscan emphasis on poverty, but it was assimilated to traditional models of female monasticism; recent studies recover something of the personalities of Clare and Agnes of Prague from the stereotypes of hagiography].

Author(s): Dickson, Gary.
Title : Clare's Dream [The author examines the canonization documents of Saint Clare of Assisi. The records depict her as a strong and determined woman who forsook her rich family and embraced a spiritual life, following the example set by Francis of Assisi. They also indicate that after Francis' death, Clare had a dream in which she sucked milk from his breast. After describing various scholars' interpretations of the dream, the author suggests that the dream demonstrates Clare's intimacy with and dependency upon Francis. It presents a more human side to the heroic woman described in later hagiographical texts. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Perceptions of Holiness in Thirteenth-Century Italian Painting: Claire of Assisi [The author describes the thirteenth-century historiated dossals (Italian panel paintings that were hung in front of or behind an altar) of Saint Francis and Saint Clare in the church of Santa Chiara in Assisi, Italy. The author argues that the papal codification of sainthood through canonization during the thirteenth century and the hagiographical writings of Thomas of Celano influenced the visual representations of Francis and Clare. The Santa Chiara Dossal at Assisi was the first thirteenth-century painting dedicated to a female monastic; its depiction of Clare as an active and determined woman stands in marked contrast to images of humble and submissive brides of Christ.
