The Rule of the Secular Franciscan Order: Origins, Development, Interpretation by Robert M. Stewart (Author), Vincenzo Criscuolo (Editor). “The Secular Franciscan Order received a new rule in 1978 from Pope Paul VI which was intended to give a new impetus to the Order so that it might flourish vigorously. This book examines the impact of that new rule while looking at the Franciscan lay movement from its origin, earlier expression and later transformation.”
