To understand Francis, says Adams, "one must wander about Assisi with the 'Floretum' or 'Fioretti' in one's hand;--the legends which are the gospel of Francis as the evangels are the gospel of Christ, who was reincarnated in Assisi." (89) He suggests, in other words, that one cannot approach Francis through historicism.
An appendix offers a good text, well annotated, of the "Antichristus" entry in the Floretum, a valuable resource good to have available in this form.
