When Saint Francis of Assisi died in 1226, he left behind an order already struggling to maintain its identity. As the Church called upon Franciscans to be bishops, professors, and inquisitors, their style of life began to change. Some in the order lamented this change and insisted on observing the strict poverty practiced by Francis himself. Others were more open to compromise. Over time, this division evolved into a genuine rift, as those who argued for strict poverty were marginalized within the order. In this book, David Burr offers the first comprehensive history of the so-called Spiritual Franciscans a protest movement within the Franciscan order. Burr shows that the movement existed more or less as a loyal opposition in the late thirteenth century, but by 1318 Pope John XXII and leaders of the order and combined to force it beyond the boundaries of legitimacy. At that point the loyal opposition turned into a heretical movement and recalcitrant friars were sent to the stake.

Excerpt from The Spiritual Franciscans When an idea finds acceptance in the world, it clothes itself in forms available for it and adapted to it. Socialization means institutionalization. For if an idea is to have growth, it must adopt propagandism; and propagandism implies the equipment of missionaries, the establishment of posts and stations, the instruction of neophytes, the control of agents, the commission of tribunals - in a single word, organization. To a majority of converts to any religious ideal this course of development seems normal and desirable, the index of the triumph of the ideal among men. But a minority have always deplored such adaptation and institutionalization as a weak compromise with the world, or even as a treasonable surrender of the pure ideal to those very powers of evil for whose destruction it was conceived. Moreover, the zealous minority, bound into a closer solidarity by the very fact of their minority, their puritanism heightened by persecution, have quite commonly developed the pathological traits consequent upon the conviction of persecuted innocence and impotent fidelity. They have appealed from the world to heaven, from time to eternity, from man to God. Their language has ceased to be a medium of human commerce, and has become an instrument of supernatural oracles. Their refuge has been in retreat, absorption, mysticism, prophecy, ecstasy. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Daniel Horan, O.F.M., popular author of Dating God and other books on Franciscan themes—and expert on the spirituality of Thomas Merton—masterfully presents the untold story of how the most popular saint in Christian history inspired the most popular spiritual writer of the twentieth century, and how together they can inspire a new generation of Christians. Millions of Christians and non-Christians look to Thomas Merton for spiritual wisdom and guidance, but to whom did Merton look? In The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton, Franciscan friar and author Daniel Horan shows how, both before and after he became a Trappist monk, Merton’s life was shaped by his love for St. Francis and for the Franciscan spiritual and intellectual tradition. Given recent renewed interest in St. Francis, this timely resource is both informative and practical, revealing a previously hidden side of Merton that will inspire a new generation of Christians to live richer, deeper, and more justice-minded lives of faith.
