Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Clare's first letter to Agnes. To the venerable and most holy virgin, the Lady Agnes, daughter of the most renowned and illustrious king of Bohemia, Clare, unworthy servant of Jesus Christ and useless handmaid of the enclosed ladies of the Monastery of San Damiano, her subject and handmaid in all circumstances, commends herself in every way and sends, with special respect, the prayer that Agnes attain the glory of everlasting happiness. Clare said that for foxes have dens, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man, who is Christ, has nowhere to lay his head.

Keywords: Clare's first letter; Lady Agnes; Lord Jesus Christ; Monastery; San Damiano
