Just wanted to thank you for presenting your discussion about Bonadventura's painting of St Francis. I am not usually interested in art history and this has been very helpful. The reason for my quest is on behalf of an eldery neighbour who has this painting hanging on his wall. He would like to understand about all the stories depicted in the painting and in your discussion only one is explained. Do you have further explanations about the other stories of St Francis' life please. Thanks, Sandra
