AbstractThe papal world view is examined through a Franciscan lens in this session. Our first paper begins with the University of Paris, analysing how images of the friars' relationship with the Pope contributed towards their safety and developed into a theology of primacy in the vision of Bonaventure. The following paper considers papal patronage at the Franciscan mother church in Assisi, mapping changes in world view and the friars' identity in its succession of painted programs. Our final paper analyses representations of popes in the Chronologia magna, an early 14th-century world chronicle written by the Franciscan Paolino Veneto.
