In the Basilica of Assisi, Giotto created 28 stunning frescoes that pay tribute to the eventful life and ministry of St. Francis. These medieval masterpieces are reproduced here in full color, together with a schematic drawing showing their placement in the church. Highlighting key moments in the saint's life, Timothy Verdon offers commentary on the artistic, historical, and biblical connotations of the images, demonstrating how to "read" the art on those walls in the same way that a medieval Christian might have done.
