Summary: This essay looks at the influence of the Vita Antonii of Athanasius on the Vita Prima sancti Francisci of Thomas of Celano. The work is primarily concerned with the structure of the Vita Prima and its presentation of a tripartite schema of spiritual growth developed in light of the narrative model of sanctity provided by the Vita Antonii.
