Course: Following Francis: An Introduction to the Franciscan Tradition

Course Description

What does the tradition of Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi, and those who continue to follow in their footsteps offer our world today? The Franciscan way cultivates peace-making, cares for creation, and forges solidarity with the poor and marginalized in a Christ-centered way of life that responds to the challenges of our world. This interdisciplinary course introduces major Franciscan figures, sources of the Franciscan tradition, and significant interpreters of this tradition to establish the foundation that is developed throughout the MTS program.
