Ephesians

By Fiorenza, Elisabeth Schussler

This commentary provides a feminist interpretation of Scripture in serious, scholarly engagement with the whole text, not only those texts that explicitly mention women. A central concern is the world in front of the text, that is, how the text is heard and appropriated by women. At the same time, this commentary aims to be faithful to the ancient text, to explicate the world behind the text, where appropriate, and not impose contemporary questions on the ancient texts.At the heart of the Epistle to the Ephesians is the question of power. In this commentary, the author examines the given understandings of ekklesia and household.

The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi

By Long, Valentine

Originally written anonymously in Ancona, Italy, in the early 14th century, this book is a collection of stories about St. Francis and his band of followers. The Latin original is lost; much of the material is attributed to a Brother Ugolino. Many other, unknown friars were no doubt responsible for the content of this book. Essentially, The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi is a written compilation of an oral tradition. St. Francis had died in 1226, so these stories were passed on through several generations. Reading this book will give you insight into the popular piety of the 13th and 14th centuries, as well as the origins of the Franciscan orders.
