Title Details

Audio Original
Running Time
12 Hrs.


When Francis of Assisi died at the age of 44 in 1226, he left behind nothing of what the world esteems as wealth.

Yet if one counts as riches the fruits of the spirit and of a humble and a contrite heart, he was wealthy beyond all measure, and left behind a legacy that thrives and changes lives in our own day. Within a few centuries after his death, Franciscans would be found from New Mexico to Beijing.

These lectures by Professors William R. Cook and Ronald B. Herzman provide:

  • a fully informed introduction to Saint Francis
  • an understanding of the power of his simple, open life
  • the story of how his influence has continued across the centuries.
