1221-2021. 800 YEARS FROM PROCESSING OF THE MEMORIALE PROPOSITI

HISTORICAL FRAMEWORK

The age of St. Francis (1182-1226) is included in the vast phenomenon of social, economic and religious renewal and rebirth that runs through the XI-XIII centuries, during which the feudal society enters into crisis and slowly a new order is formed, more communal and civil, accompanied by new and interesting religious ferments. 

In the Church, reasons of corruption and worldliness have long been present at various levels: the interference of political power (emperors of the Holy Roman Empire, starting from Charlemagne – IX century) in the appointment of bishops and the Pope had contributed heavily to pollute the degree of morality in many members of the ecclesiastical institution.
