part.i^

The world is most horrible for the wicked,
most admirable for the good.

Narrow is the way, namely, in the custody
of the heart.

If one were in the midst of many enemies
who were hurling darts and arrows and stones
at him, it would do him no good to lay down
his arms.



^5 This and the eight preceding paragraphs are found
in the " Chron. XXIV General.," p. 85, under the heading
*' How he admonished the lazy Brothers preaching will-
ingly to others."

" See above, p. 29.



Appendix II "7

The portions of food are ready, but there is
none to receive.^"

I wish to have such a master that if I should
be in the convent, he might be with me; if
in a hermitage, likewise ; if in the market-place
or the forest, likewise.

Even as a good habit is the way to all good,
so is a bad habit to all evil.^^

" See " Chron. XXIV General.," p. 87.

BIBLIOGRAPHY




BIBLIOGRAPHY

IN the preparation of the
present volume I have tried
to study everything, old and
new, within reach, dealing
with Blessed Giles. For the
benefit of those who may be
interested in this subject I herewith append
a list of the principal works I have cited or
referred to as authorities, adding here and
there a few words of explanation as to the
character of those less known to the general
reader. I have thought it better to omit ref-
erences to works not easily accessible. The
critical student of Franciscan sources will
know where to find such works better than
I can tell him.

ACTA SANCTORUM. This celebrated collection,
started about the middle of the seventeenth century
under the direction of Father John Bollandus, and
continued by other Fathers of the Society of Jesus
known as the Bollandists, contains the " Historia
Vitae B. Aegidii," edited, after a Perugian MS.
now lost, by Papebroche, who contributes a valuable
" Commentarius Praevius" and notes. This Life is
followed by a lengthy collection of the " Dicta Aurea "
and a list of miracles wrought through Blessed Giles's
intercession after his death. See "Acta SS.," April,
t. iii, edit, noviss., 1866, pp. 222-249.

ACTUS B. FRANCISCI ET SOCIORUM EJUS.
This work, in 8vo, pp. lxiv-272, which dates from



122 Brother Giles

c. 1270-1328, was edited by M. Paul Sabatier in 1902.
It forms vol. iv of the "Collection d'Etudes" and
comprises with other matter the Latin text of the
traditional " Fioretti." Chapters 44, 45, 46, and 47
have special reference to Blessed Giles. The deli-
cate question of the Leonine biography is treated in
the Introduction. See " Actus B. Francisci," p. Iviii,
and passim. There is a copious index.

ANALECTA BOLLANDIANA. A quarterly review
of hagiographical literature published at Brussels by
the BoUandists. Most of the articles on Franciscan
subjects are from the pen of Fr. Francis Van Ortroy,
S.J. On the "Vita" and *' Dicta B. Aegidii," see tt.
vi (1887), p. 171; xvii (1898), p. 380; xix (1900), p. 72;
xxi (1902), p. 112, and xxiv {1905), p. 410.

ANALECTA FRANCISCANA. The series published
under this title by the Friars Minor at St. Bonaven-
ture's College, Quaracchi, contains the texts of a
number of early chronicles of the Franciscan Order.
Three volumes have appeared so far. Vol. iii, issued
in 1897 (in 4to, pp. xxviii-748), contains the well-known
" Chronica XXIV Generalium " (referred to herein as
" Chron. XXIV General."), a compilation dating from
c. 1369-1374 and including many early documents,
notably a " Vita Fratris Aegidii," which no less a
critic than Papini regarded as the genuine Leonine
biography. The editing of this chronicle was done in
greatest part by Fr. Quinctianus Miiller, O.F.M. See
t. iii, pp. 77-115, and passim.

Bartholomew, Fr., of Pisa, O.F.M. : DE CONFOR-
MITATE VITAE B. FRANCISCI AD VITAM
D. N. JESU CHRISTI. This remarkable work,
which has been condemned with most unmerited
ostracism by those who have not had the patience to
study it, was begun about 1385, and approved by the
General Chapter of the Friars Minor held in 1399. A
critical edition of the text, which is sorely needed,
will appear in vol. iv of the " Analecta Franciscana."
Meanwhile my references are to the edition printed
at Milan in 1510. It contains excerpts from the life

Bernard, Fn, of Besse, O.F.M. : LIBER DE LAUDI-
BUS B. FRANCISCI. In this short legend, which
was published in 1897, both at Quaracchi ("Anal.
Francis.," t. iii, pp. 666-692.), and by Fr. Hilarin Felder
of Lucerne, O. M. Cap. (Rome, ex typ. Editrice In-
dustriale), Bernard of Besse, who lived about 1278
and was secretary to St. Bonaventure, makes inter-
esting mention of Giles (c. i.). Father Hilarin's
edition also includes a valuable reference to the frag-
mentary life of Giles contained in the Freiburg MS.,
23 J. 60.

Doctor bears important witness to the virtues and
ecstasies of Giles. There is an English translation

don : Washbourne.

S. Bonaventure: OPERA OMNIA. Quaracchi, 1882-
1902, in 4to maj. Vol. rA. There is a special refer-
ence made to Giles not only in the " Legenda Major "
of St. Bonaventure, c. 3, but also in the Commentary
on St. Luke, Sermon for Holy Saturday, and else-
where. See " Opera Omnia," t. vii, p. 231, t. ix,

by Pere Edouard d'Alen^on : " S. Francisci Assisi-

volume contains (see pp. 37-63) the short life of Giles
attributed to Brother Leo after MS. 1/63 of St. Isi-
dore's College, Rome (see above, p. x). In part iii
of the same series (Quaracchi, 1902, pp. 6-12) will be
found Fr. Lemmens's comments on the criticisms
passed upon this life by Fr. Van Ortroy and others.

DOWNSIDE REVIEW for April 1902 contains (pp. i-
17) an article by Mr. Montgomery Carmichael, entitled
*' The First Franciscan Convent," which is valuable
in connection with the controverted question as to
whether Giles was received by St. Francis at Rivo-
torto or at the Porziuncula. See also under *' Fran-
ciscan Annals."

Felder, O. Cap., Lektor der Heiligen Theologie.
Freiburg und St. Louis, Mo., B. Herder, 1904, in
8vo, pp. xi-557. This weighty volume, which deals
with the development of studies in the first century
of the Order, must appeal to all interested in the
question of Franciscan origins, even though — like
myself — they are unable to accept all the conclusions
of its learned author. In so far as Giles is concerned,
see pp. 34 and 64; also for further references, pp. 177
and 234.

FIORETTI DI SAN FRANCESCO should if possible
be read in Italian. Perhaps the best version hitherto
published for the general reader is Antonio Cesari's
(Verona, 1822), based on the epoch-making edition of
Filippo Buonarroti (Florence, 1718). The Crusca
quote from both these editions. For a list of trans-
lations containing selections from the " Dicta," see
above, p. Ivii.

Fratini, M. Conv., Fr. Guiseppe : VITA DEL B. EGI-
DIO D'ASSISI. Assisi, Tip. Metastasio, 1898, in
i6mo, pp. xvi-144. This biography is satisfactory so
far as it goes, but it should not be read with a critical
eye. See " Anal. Bolland.," t. xvii, p. 380, and " Misc.
Frances.," vol. vii, fasc. i, p. 30.

BIO-BIBLIOGRAFICA DELLA TERRA SANTA
E DELL' ORIENTE FRANCESCANO, t. 1(1215-

thoroughly critical work is a veritable mine of infor-
mation, not only as regards the role played by the first
Franciscans in the Orient, but also concerning the
early history of the whole Order. For the story of
Giles's visit to the Holy Places and to Tunis, and for
the general chronology of his life, see pp. 105, 91, 47,

referred to in almost the same words as in the " Liber
de Laudibus." See p. 8.

ii of this excellent work, which is translated from the

graphical sketch of Blessed Giles.

oughly devout scholar.

MISCELLANEA FRANCESCANA. This valuable
periodical, published at Foligno under the auspices
of Mgr. Faloci-Pulignani, may be said to represent
the extreme conservative view of things Franciscan.
During the twenty years that have elapsed since its
foundation, various aspects of the Life and Sayings
of Blessed Giles have been treated in its pages. See
in particular, vol. iv, fasc. v. p. 157 ; vol. vii, fasc. i, p. 30,
