This episode is about the beginning of Feast Day (today!) with Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the Patron Saint of animals, ecology, and merchants.
According to Wolf : "Even secular scholars, bent on approaching the saint from a more detached historical perspective, have invariably, if inadvertently, left Francis on the pedestal where they found him".
Join me in a small biography of Francis, from the beginning of his life in a well-respected family milieu to the extreme poverty he chose, and on to the foundation of the Franciscan order.
Then I try to lift out the more popular mythologies around his later life, surrounding himself with animals.
