Abstract:

Publisher's description: In Clare of Assisi, Joan Mueller provides an accessible translation of Clare of Assisi₂s four letters to Agnes of Prague. The letters bring to life a dynamic moment in the history of women's spirituality. Agnes of Prague, a Bohemian princess, rejected an offer of marriage from the German emperor Frederick II and then built a monastery and hospital from her royal dowry. She wrote to Clare for instructions on how to establish this monastery in the Franciscan spirit. In her letters responding to Agnes, Clare reveals what is essential to the Franciscan life, how to become a person of prayer and of joy, and the spiritual benefits of living a simple and poor lifestyle. Clare of Assisi makes these letters available to all readers.
