Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a conversation between a narrator and an auditor. The central theme of the miracles is that they were caused by the Franciscans. The narrator joins the miracle stories to each other, without putting them against each other. The auditor interrupts him sometimes with questions that relate to the theological or doctrinal aspects of the miracles. Many aspects are discussed, for example, the importance of the water that flows from the grave of a deceased friar; the reason why some people are born sick or deformed; and the way the devil dominates the possessed. The narrator bases his statements, especially on the Bible. Sometimes his designs are completed with a speech by the auditor, who asks him to tell more. In other cases, the narrator switches to the interpretation of the narrative. The original text of the chapter is in German.
