The development of educational materials (DVDs with study guides) on the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition offered on this website were sponsored by the Commission for the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition. (See the short history presented below.)
A committee consisting of: Lisa Zmuda fspa (media editor); study guides by: Sharon Berger fspa, Suzanne Kush cssf and Kathleen Moffatt osf (committee chairperson) worked four years to make these scholarly presentations available to all who want to learn about the Franciscan Tradition through the works of its scholars.
Ruahmedia is the exclusive distributor of these materials. Because of a grant given to this committee by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration we are able to keep the cost per dvd affordable. Our main goal is to make the works of our Franciscan scholars available to all who wish to learn and bring the message of St. Francis and St. Clare into the world today.
You may contact Lisa Zmuda fspa at for additional information regarding the offerings on this site.
