12th and 13th century manuscripts relating to St. Francis of Assisi are going on display starting Dec. 17 at Brooklyn Borough Hall, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.
"Friar Francis: Traces, Words and Images,” is the biggest exhibition ever to be held at Borough Hall.
Joe Chirico of Marco Polo Ristorante played a big role in bringing the exhibition.
“I went to Assisi, I saw the exhibition there, I saw the church where St. Francis is buried. My eyes cannot believe what I saw,” Chirico told the Eagle.
