LibrariesDescription of the library assets managed by the Friars
St. Bonaventure wrote: “If the friars are to preach, and do not want to tell stories, they must have knowledge”.
Francis of Assisi taught that this knowledge must become a passion that leads one to the Infinite and Highest Good.
Still today, the Friars Minor continue to be dedicated to acquiring a solid, effective cultural formation, making the rich patrimony of their libraries available to everyone. Hundreds of thousand of books – with important manuscripts, incunabula and “cinquecentine” – are available for research and study.
Following is a list of the main Libraries held by the Province of Friars Minor of Umbria.
