Our old blogging buddy M.A. Peel recently returned from Italy where she took this photo. “A lazy Saturday in Assisi and the medieval heralds are doing their thing.” San Francisco di Assisi. August 16, 2014.
Mrs Peel was there for a workshop in Renaissance polyphony. While she was in the hometown of the new pope’s namesake, she took the opportunity to brush up on the biography and character of St Francis and filed this report.
