Example text

15. Sister Balvina of Porzano The interrogators interviewed Sister Balvina in the S. Damiano infirmary. Clare’s process of canonization contains a wealth of material regarding Clare’s life within the S. Damiano monastery. To organize this material, the author of the Legend writes of Clare’s virtues interspersed with miracle stories intended to amaze and edify the reader. Because the cultivation of virtue, which gives vitality and energy to the enclosed life, might seem pedantic to those living in the public sphere, the author of the Legend faced the challenge of bridging the feminine enclosed life with a public audience.

Process 20:3. 70 After correcting genealogical mistakes made by earlier scholars, Fortini’s work collaborates testimony given in the process of canonization. There is ample evidence from the archives of S. Rufino documenting that Clare’s family indeed lived near the Church of S. 71 The documents demonstrate that the feudatories of Assisi sided with Perugia against the citizens of Assisi, and that noble Assisi families, including Clare’s, went to Perugia for a time during the unrest. 72 Although it is clear that Clare’s paternal home was near the Church of S.

She affirmed Sister Pacifica’s claim that Clare did not consume anything on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until Francis commanded her to eat something every day. 29 In regard to her clothing, Sister Benvenuta testified that Clare had only one tunic made of low-grade wool commonly worn by peasants, and a mantle. If she noticed that a sister in the monastery had a tunic worse than hers, she exchanged her tunic with the sister.
