The Poverello | Hermitage Library of Saint Francis

The Poverello Library was launched last July (July 12, 2018 to be precise) with a gift of four books on the life of Saint Francis of Assisi from my good friend and brother in the Lord, Fr. Randall Trego. Since that short time, more than twenty books about “the little poor man” have been added, with new volumes on St. Francis arriving every month.

All of the books in The Poverello Library are exclusively written about Saint Francis of Assisi or Franciscan spirituality and include biographies, non-fiction, and fictional works. These hardback, paperback, or occasional leather-bound books may be new, used, or even ex-library, but all are clean with no markings, notes, or underlining. Some are First Editions, and many are out-of-print. All are in very good or new condition.

The following links should provide you with answers to most of your questions about the library. Still have questions? Feel free to contact me anytime.
