This monograph on Eric Doyle OFM (1938–1984) takes a comprehensive look at this much loved and gifted Friar of the English province. Often considered to have been ahead of his time, this work takes an in-depth look at his theology and spirituality, totally imbued by the Franciscan charism. His love of the humanity of St Francis, his dispelling of the ‘romantic myth’ surrounding the saint, his retrieval of the Franciscan charism post Vatican II, and particularly his location of that charism as ending with the death of Blessed John Duns Scotus in 1308, assure him of a significant place within the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition. Friar, evangeliser, broadcaster, scholar, ecumenist and mystic, Eric Doyle’s thought has perennial, even urgent, relevance as this book highlights.
