Re: Re the date of St. Clare"s death

Yes, I was puzzled that I did not find St. Clare who was associated with St. Francis of Assisi.  I learned about HER when I called the local St. Clare church.

John and all:  When I was searching for the "real" St Clair several years ago, I came across the book containing the names of "French Saints"  (my term, I forget the title of the book), and the point was made that these were individuals which were consecrated by the Norman Church, not the Roman Church.  Only Clare appeared in the book of Roman Saints.  I sent a translation of the French story on Clair to Niven, which he referred to earlier this month.  I don't know what the problems were between the two branches of Catholic church, but those of Norman persuasion were obviously going their own way.  When someone confirms this, it will clarify the matter for those who have been attempting to identify our St Clair in Catholic church writings.
