Praise for Bill Short

“Bill Short brings a lifetime of scholarly work combined with a lifetime of applying the principles of the Franciscan Rule of Life to his daily existence. Thus, [his presentations are] shot through with the wit and wisdom.”
– Margaret Carney, OSF, President Emerita, St. Bonaventure University

“Bill Short is one of the most prolific and knowledgeable scholars of the entire Franciscan tradition as evidenced by his previous lecture series, articles, and books on the Franciscan movement. As those living in the Middle Ages would say, to listen to Bill is to sit at the feet of a Master.”
– Fr. Steven J. McMichael, OFM Conv., University of Saint Thomas

“Brother Bill Short has dedicated his Franciscan life to make accessible the rich spiritual resources of the early Franciscan tradition. Through his sharp translation skills, insight, and heartfelt humor, Francis of Assisi speaks to us again today.”
– J. A. Wayne Hellmann OFM Conv.

Joan Mueller, O.S.C., Ph.D., is an active Poor Clare Sister and an internationally known Franciscan scholar specializing in the writings of Clare of Assisi. A professor of systematic theology and Christian spirituality at Creighton University, Dr. Mueller is the author of twenty books and numerous scholarly encyclopedic entries and articles, including A Companion to Clare of Assisi: Life, Writings, and Spirituality (Brill, 2010); The Privilege of Poverty: Clare of Assisi, Agnes of Prague, and the Struggle for a Franciscan Rule for Women (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2006); Clare of Assisi: The Letters to Agnes (The Liturgical Press, 2003); and Clare’s Letters to Agnes: Texts and Sources (The Franciscan Institute, 2001). Dr. Mueller served as the historical consultant to the Assisi musical, Francesco: Il Musical and wrote the accompanying novel Francis: The Saint of Assisi (New City Press, 2000, 2010), which has been translated into Dutch, German, and Italian.

Dr. Mueller’s contributions to Clare studies include a new translation of the letters of Clare and Clare’s Form of Life. These translations solve, for the first time, Clare’s spirituality of the mirror image as well as numerous other technical questions. Internationally, Dr. Mueller was the first scholar to put Clare’s letters in context not only with other documents found on the Italian peninsula but also within the European context—particularly, and most importantly, discovering Agnes of Prague’s assistance in helping Clare lay the groundwork for a canonically-confirmed Franciscan Forma Vitae for women.
