ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Franciscan Institute Publications announces the release of the 17th volume in its Spirit and Life series, Her Bright Merits: Essays in Honor of Ingrid J. Peterson, O.S.F.
Ingrid J. Peterson, O.S.F., is a Third Order Franciscan sister from Rochester, Minnesota. She holds an undergraduate degree in elementary education from the College of Saint Teresa; an M.A. in public address from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; and a Ph.D. in English, with a concentration in Medieval Renaissance and Romance Literature, from the University of Iowa.
Peterson is distinguished in the field of Franciscan studies by her work on Clare of Assisi and the women of the early Franciscan movement.
This book, a collection of essays on those topics by several of the best scholars in the field, is offered in tribute to Peterson and her academic and scholarly contributions to the study of Clare and the women of the early movement. Divided into four parts, part one introduces Peterson, part two takes readers into the heart of studies of Franciscan women, part three focuses on how Peterson came to the study of medieval history and the volume concludes with Peterson’s own summation of what she leaves for scholars to do in this field.
