  • Epigraph: '...her body should be preserved on account of her holiness and because God took such pleasure in her body and heart ... After vespers or thereabouts, the said Francesca, Margherita, Lucia and Caterina went to get the heart, which was in a box ... And the said Francesca of Foligno cut open the heart with her own hand and opening it they found in the heart a cross, or the image of the crucified Christ.'

    Sister Francesca of Foligno (1318)
