Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book Creating Clare of Assisi contains table of contents, list of maps, list of abbreviations and acknowledgments. The book investigates Clare of Assisi's ambiguous position in the development of female Franciscanism as an institution throughout the Middle Ages. Parallel to an emphasis on Francis' hostility toward religious women (or, at least, their communities), there is another long established tradition of viewing Clare as his partner in the foundation of the Franciscan "Second Order.".

Keywords: female Franciscanism; Middle Ages
