... da Todi ( 1236–1306 ). Umbrian poet and mystic . Destined for the law, he is said to have undergone a conversion in 1268 when his wife died and was found to be wearing a hair-shirt beneath her fancy outer clothes. He lived as a ‘bizzocone’ (a kind of tertiary) before entering the Franciscan order as a lay brother in 1278 . He was part of the Spiritual wing of the order, led by Giovanni da Parma , Pier Gianni Olivi , and Ubertino da Casale , this, therefore, providing him with the institutional context for his at times fiercely anarchic brand...

...V. ( Pietro da Morrone ) ( 1209/10–96 ). A hermit in the Abruzzi, who was elected Pope in July 1294 and abdicated in December. Iacopone da Todi addressed a poem to him on his election ( Laude 74). Dante 's phrase, ‘colui che fece per viltade il gran rifiuto’, probably refers to him ( Inf . 3.59–60), as his successor was Dante's enemy Boniface VIII . He was canonized in 1313 .

...VIII ( Benedetto Caetani ) ( ?1235–1303 ), Pope 1294–1303 , was fiercely attacked in the poetry of Iacopone da Todi ( Laude , 83) and Dante , who attributed his exile to Boniface's alliance with the Black Guelfs ( Inf . 6.69; Para . 17.49–51) and condemned his simony, his crusade against the Colonna cardinals, and his effective usurpation of the papal throne ( Inf . 19.52–7; 27.85–111; Para . 27.22–7).

...composed and sung in Central Italy generally until at least the 16th c. Most laudi are anonymous, being preserved in collections such as the Laudario di Cortona of the 1270s. A major exception from the end of the 13th c. is the extensive and distinctive body of work by Iacopone da Todi . The origins of the laudi probably lie in the Latin liturgy and more particularly in the praise psalms used in the Morning Office. Formally, the earliest laude (from Latin laudes , ‘praises’) probably consisted of little more than an invocation and collective response....

The influences on C. were so eclectic and her take on them personal that she cannot legitimately be tied to any particular theological school.

...current in Britain today. In literary histories the rest of medieval Italian literature is normally treated as subservient and separate. However the 13th c. in particular stands as one of the great centuries of Italian literature. It saw major writers—Brunetto Latini , Iacopone da Todi, Guittone d'Arezzo , Guido Cavalcanti , Cecco Angiolieri . It is difficult, in fact, to imagine the Tre Corone as somehow disconnected from this vital and complex literary ferment, of which they themselves were well aware. Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio have also had...
