Welcome to Quaracchi


First in Florence, now in Rome, since 1877 the Quaracchi Friars publish the results of research on the Franciscan intellectual and spiritual tradition. We specialize in critical editions of the writings of John Duns Scotus, Bonaventure, Alexander of Hales, Peter of John Olivi and other Franciscan thinkers.

We must honour all … those who minister the most holy divine words … as those who minister to us spirit and life.

The Quaracchi Editions

The Quaracchi Friars publish works of important Franciscan authors. We have special collections on Philosophy, Theology, Spirituality, and Franciscan history from the 13th to the 21st century. And we bring this living tradition into dialogue with today’s questions.
