History Of The San Damiano Crucifix
Damiano is a church with a monastery near Assisi, Italy. Built in the
12th century, it was the first monastery of the Order of Saint Clare,
where Saint Clare built her community.
The church has a hut-shaped
façade; the entrance is preceded by a short portico with three round
arcades supported by brickwork pillars. Above the central arch is a
circular rose window. The interior has a single nave with ogival barrel
vaults. The right wall is home to a rectangular chapel with, at the
altar, a wooden crucifix execeuted by Innocenzo da Petralia in 1637.
The nave ends with a deep apse with a modern stone altar, a Baroque
wooden tabernacle and the choir.
The church, according to tradition,
is connected with Saint Francis' encounter with Christ. In 1205 he had
been praying at San Damiano which at the time was a very run down
building. Saint Francis saw the figure of Christ crucified come alive
and say to him, "Francis, don't you see my house is crumbling apart? Go,
then, and restore it!" Afterwards Saint Francis took action to repair
San Damiano, although he eventually realized that God's message to him
was to restore the Church as a whole rather than literally repair
churches such as San Damiano. The cross from which Christ spoke to Saint
Francis is known as the San Damiano cross. It currently hangs in the
Basilica di Santa Chiara (Basilica of Saint Clare) in Assisi.
