Short summary
In this age of environmental awareness, it is interesting to see how the ecological movement was created by a saint and an artist. The unlikely team of St. Francis and Giotto were revolutionaries – the former, with his ideas on natural philosophy, and the latter, who portrayed the geological landscape in a way that made any viewer aware of the majesty of God's creation. These two created a lasting legacy as they shaped our perspective on the environment over 700 years ago.
