Dervish Francis

I am currently reading an inspiring biography of St. Francis of Assisi by James Cowan called Francis: A Saint's Way : Cowan is sensitive enough to recognise and cite the comparison between St. Francis and Sufi thought. In fact Francis has strong connections with the Troubadour tradition, itself a specific projection of Sufi material.

Then today I came across the latest post from a website I pop into - making the very same connections: The Sufis and Saint Francis of Assisi
