Why this translation? For Capuchin Friars, texts such as these are a window into Capuchin spirit and life in the beginning when our Capuchin identity began to take shape. By making such texts available in English, I hope that we may shorten the distance of time between us today and our brothers yesterday. Access to original texts may allow us to listen to them as they vividly describe and interpret their experiences. The text is a place of encounter, and through such meetings, the shadowy image of these brothers takes on greater definition. And more wonderfully, their history becomes ours. Of course, such texts will be valuable for anyone interested in the Franciscan movement or charism and its remarkably diverse forms of expression down the centuries.\
