Popular historian and award-winning author Jon M. Sweeney relates the untold story of St. Francisís friendship with Elias of Cortona, the man who helped him build the Franciscan movement. Sweeney uses the complexities of their relationship in a gripping narrative of how their efforts changed the world and how Eliasís enthusiasm betrayed the ideals of his friend.
Few biographies of St. Francis have examined his complicated relationship with close friend Elias of Cortona. In The Enthusiast, award-winning author and historian Jon M. Sweeney delves into this little-known partnership that defined and then almost destroyed Francisís ideals.
Blending history and biography, Sweeney reveals how Francis and Elias rebuilt churches, aided lepers, and entertained as ďGodís troubadoursĒ to the delight of everyday people who had grown tired of a remote and tumultuous Church.
