The earliest biographies of Francis were written against a backdrop of poverty‐related controversies that had begun to tear apart the Franciscan order even before Francis's death. This appendix attempts to place the principal biographies (those of Thomas of Celano and Bonaventure as well as the anonymous Legend of the Three Companions and the Assisi Compilation) in the context of these disputes.
