The Origins and Franciscan Tradition of the Symbol
by Enrico Sciamanna
Translated by Catherine Bolton
79 pages, Paperback Edition
The Tau is a sign of elevation, and the place to which it pertains is on high. The Tau was backed by solid biblical Christian tradition when it was embraced by St. Francis in his spirituality. The Saint adopted it intensley and completely, ultimately transforming himself, through the Stigmata on his body, into the living Tau he had so often contemplated,, written, and above all, worshiped.
