Montegiorgio, Ugolino: The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi. V1. 27-Mar-2011
Ugulino was the author of the Actus Beati Francisci et Sociorum Eius (The Deeds of Blessed Francis and His Companions) which was translated into the Italian Tuscan dialect by an anonymous translator and named Fioretti di Santo Francesco d' Ascesi or The Little Flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi. The work was a collection of anecdotes regarding the life of St. Francis and his early disciples. In this context "Fioretti", or "garden of flowers", means simply "notabilia", or "more noteworthy things", things omitted from the formal biographies of the Saint.

St. Francis is my patron saint, so I'll look forward to this. I don't know much about him, and have been meaning to read a biography. Thanks weatherwax!
