The encounter between Francis of Assisi and the wolf is one of the best known medieval stories, but above all it is the Franciscan story par excellence. Faced with a complex hagiographic corpus, full of tormented rewritings, this is one tale that has no different versions. However, its interpretation has provoked a debate that is still far from over. The aim of this volume is to read this story 'up close', attempting to specify the concrete manner in which it became fixed in the decades at the turn of the fourteenth century, and how it was then transmitted (both textually and iconographically) to the subsequent tradition. It is an attempt, with several voices, to highlight the voids and fullnesses of this history and its memory, in order to provide scholars with tools to match its depth.

Abstract

The encounter between Francis of Assisi and the wolf is one of the best known medieval stories, but above all it is the Franciscan story par excellence. Faced with a complex hagiographic corpus, full of tormented rewritings, this is one tale that has no different versions. However, its interpretation has provoked a debate that is still far from over. The aim of this volume is to read this story 'up close', attempting to specify the concrete manner in which it became fixed in the decades at the turn of the fourteenth century, and how it was then transmitted (both textually and iconographically) to the subsequent tradition. It is an attempt, with several voices, to highlight the voids and fullnesses of this history and its memory, in order to provide scholars with tools to match its depth.
