The Canticle of the Creatures

"The Canticle of the Creatures", also known as "The Canticle of Brother Sun and Sister Moon" , It is the oldest of the poetic text literature Italian ever known.
Its author is the Holy Francis of Assisi and was composed in 1226.
The Canticle of the Creatures is a praise to It Gave that winds with intensity and force through his works, thus becoming also a hymn to life; it's a prayer permeated by a positive vision of nature, as created in the image of the Creator is reflected: hence the sense of brotherhood among the’uomo and all creation, which distances itself from the very contemptus mundi, from detachment and contempt for the world ground, marked by sin and suffering, typical of other medieval religious trends (p.es. Jacopone). The creation becomes a great means of praise to the Creator.
