An In-Depth Look at the Life of St. Elizabeth of Hungary
For almost eight centuries, St. Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231) has been celebrated as a saint and as the patroness of the Franciscan Third Order Secular and Third Order Regular. she is loved for her dedication to the poor. Yet the details of her life are still too little known. Though there is an abundance of contemporary sources for her life, there is also an abundance of late legends. Only in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has there been any sustained attempt to disentangle the facts from the legends.
