Example text

3, 66. The designation of the title “brother” on Jacopa is a complex issue that goes beyond the scope of this analysis. For various interpretations of this, see Dalarun, Saint Francis of Assisi and the Feminine, 132–133.. Assisi Compilation, FAED, Vol. 2, 122; Mirror of Perfection, FAED, Vol. 3, 222 (although this reference is absent from Paul Sabatier’s edition of the same work, FAED, Vol. 3, 355), and Deeds of the Blessed Francis, FAED, Vol. 3, 473–474. While Thomas of Celano does not explicitly call Jacopa a Magdalene figure, he does depict her insisting that Francis’s stigmata be revealed to the public after his death.

She entered having brought with her 22 Darleen Pryds all that he had requested in the letter that had never been sent. Jacopa attributed the miracle of prescience to a voice she heard while praying, which said, “Go, visit your father, blessed Francis, without delay, and hurry, because if you delay long you will not find him alive. Moreover, take such and such cloth for his tunic, as well as the ingredients for making that particular confection. ” Thus in this rendition, dialogue allows Francis to be attributed with words that highlight Jacopa’s special status, and allows Jacopa to attribute the miracle of her prescience directly to God.

In the Assisi Compilation the author compares the story of Jacopa’s visit to the story of the Magi so that Jacopa’s arrival at Francis’s death is not only a miracle, but it is one of biblical proportions. ” Rather than presenting the story of Jacopa as merely one of matter-of-fact compassion and care at the deathbed, this account presents her as having been called to serve Francis by none other than God the Heavenly Father. Jacopa is likened to the Magi, just as Francis is likened to the Christ child.
