Spirit + Life No. 130: October – December 2019



October – December 2019


The Franciscan Cultural Review “Spirit+Life” 130 (October – December 2019) features the conclusion of the 800 years of Franciscan presence in the Holy Land. The Editorial is dedicated to a reflection on the Pan-Amazon Synod and its significance to the Church, as seen within a Franciscan perspective. The main paper regards the Origins of Franciscan Presence on the Island of Cyprus, which is part and parcel of the Custody of the Holy Land. The review also concludes the series of papers dedicated to the celebration of the 800 years of Franciscan presence and of Francis’ visit to the East in 1219. Then follow two presentations of two Congresses celebrated in October 2019, namely the annual Congress of the International Society of Franciscan Studies in Assisi, and the Congress concluding the 800 year celebrations in the Holy Land, with a reference to a recent publication on the same themes that have been presented during this centenary year.
