Exploring a holy site is analogous to detective work. First impressions are important, yet it's the clues they provide that lead to significant insights. Rather than a standard guidebook, this one invites you to delve into layers of meaning behind selections of the art and architecture of The Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi, Italy.  It is more like a companion who sits beside you on the pew as your eye roves over the scene before you. 


Even if you are not planning a trip to Assisi, you will discover insights into the life of St. Clare and the story of the community and glimpses into the impact of historical events on this building. In these pages, Fr. Joe reveals an engaging portrait of an exceptional woman who co-founded a vibrant movement.

The Basilica of Saint Clare: The Story Behind the Story by Joseph H. Schwab, OFM
