Summary A study of palindromic structures (words or phrases that can be read the same way forwards and backwards) in the works of Bonaventure, Dante, Boccaccio, and the Franciscan writers of the late Middle Ages. The author, Sister Lucia Treanor, provides the conceptual basis for the use of the palindrome while demonstrating that palindrome was not just an ornamental style of writing, but also a reflection of humanity's perception of the world. Significant attention has been paid to Franciscan theology as it relates to human endeavors and God's creation.
