ABSTRACT
The Author treats the path followed by the view of man as the image of God in the Franciscan tradition. He emphasizes the Christological and integral anthropological perspective of Francis, the Founder (Admonitions V,1), and then retraces the path of Franciscan theological thought, analyzing the positions of St. Anthony of Padua, the pre-Bonaventurian Parisian School of Theology, St. Bonaventure, Matthew of Aquasparta, Ubertino of Casale, John Duns Scotus, St. Lawrence of Brindisi and recent Franciscan theologians. The research infers that the aforementioned theologians did not preserve the Christocentric and integral anthropological vision of St. Francis in all of its purity. With the exception of St. Lawrence of Brindisi, they substantially adopted the Trinitarian and psychological view of St. Augustine. A return to the vision of St. Francis, which coincides with the doctrine of the New Testament, Asian patristic thought and Vatican II (cf. Gaudium et Spes, 22), is capable of returning Franciscan theology to its original Christocentric and anthropological intuitions. These intuitions could then possibly enrich contemporary anthropology, especially in its task of re-evaluating corporal-ity in a healthy way, ultimately seeing it as grounded, according to the Saint of Assisi, in the divine plan of the Incarnation/Embodiment of the eternal Son.
