Author(s): Pasztor, Edith.
Title : Chiara da Montefalco [Clare of Montefalco lived as a penitent in her parents' home and then as a nun at Santa Croce di Montefalco. Her visions, reported second-hand, are focused on Jesus, Mary, or the afterlife, reflecting the realistic piety of the Franciscan movement. She anticipated the later emphasis of women's visions on the Passion. Clare, even in her lifetime, began to appear in other women's visions, which are reported by her biographers].

Author(s): Pasztor, Edith.
Title : Angela da Foligno [The visions of Angela of Foligno are mediated through both her words in the vernacular and the Latin words of Brother Arnold. Both were aware of the limits of words to describe her experiences. Angela's visions, like those of other Umbrian women, focus particularly on the Passion of Jesus, but she also saw herself holding the Christ Child. Her Marian visions, unlike those of Clare of Montefalco, emphasize Mary's poverty and humility].
