About this version of the text: This translation is taken from M. L. Cameron, The Inquiring Pilgrim's Guide to Assisi, trans. A. G. Ferrers Howell (London, 1926). This translator loved archaic
language, but it makes for difficult modern reading. I have done a considerable amount of editing and added some notes (my notes appear in square brackets).

This text was prepared for the web by Prof. Leah Shopkow, and is used here by her permission.
