RS 584 Overview

Francis of Assisi was a person who learned how to heal the divisions of his world: divisions between economic and social groups in society, between competing religions, and between humans and the rest of creation. He encouraged the men and women who followed him to do the same. Drawing on his life and example and the movements that imitated him, this course will address how Francis healed those divisions and will consider the Franciscan tradition as a model for today in creating a healthy and peaceful planet.
