This course will familiarize students with the people, events and ideas that have inspired the Franciscan Movement.

Topics may include the role of Franciscans in the development of Christian Spirituality over the past 800 years, as well as in the development of western art, higher education, and politics.  The course will include attention to the internal struggles of Franciscans; to the role of women in the Franciscan Family; and finally to the founding of Siena College as a Franciscan contribution to higher education.
