Franciscan Institute & Franciscan Institute Publications; Dean, School of Franciscan Studies
The Franciscan Institute, located within the Friedsam Library on the campus of St. Bonaventure University, engages in two principal areas of scholarly concern: research and publication. A quick look at these components of the Institute will give a better idea of the extent and richness of the work of the Franciscan Institute.
The Research Advisory Council (RAC) for the Franciscan Institute met at St. Bonaventure University on June 24-26, 2014, to set the research agenda for 2015-2017. During this time the RAC finalized a multi-year proposal for a series of symposia/workshops that will be held at the Franciscan Institute in conjunction with the Feast of Saint Bonaventure on July 15th.
