Jacopa’s special qualifications for this honor of presence at Francis’s death were established at the beginning of the chapter: “Jacopa dei Settesoli, equal in fame and holiness in the city of Rome, earned the privilege of special love from the saint. ” Given her noble rank and special spiritual status, Jacopa was given the privilege of holding Francis’s body after his death, “All wet with tears, Lady Jacopa and Francis 23 she was brought in private and alone, and the body of her friend was placed in her arms.

Jacopa’s temporal power and familial connections with the archenemy of the papal Conti family have led some scholars, including Carol Reilley Urner, to posit political reasons for the omission of Jacopa’s story especially from official vitae. Even if Jacopa began forging her own independent political path once she became a widow by 1212, as is evidenced by the treaty she signed with the papacy in 1217, she may still have been seen as too volatile a figure to be included in a work such as Thomas of Celano’s first vita, commissioned as it was by Pope Gregory IX, a member of the Conti family.
