Ernest Renan's Life of Jesus defends and illustrates a thesis according to which the biography of Jesus should be written like that of any other man. The Gospels were to be subjected to critical examination like any other historical document. In application of this thesis, Renan puts the story into a historical framework, relating the gospel elements to what was known about the historical and social context of the time. The little flowers of St. Francis of Assisi tell of the miracles he performed.
