St. Bonaventure's love of wisdom was intimately related to his love of God -- so much so that he is called the "Seraphic Doctor" for the ardor that accompanied his great mind. He is regarded as one of Christianity's greatest mystics as well as philosophers. He was born in Bagnorea, Italy, and legend says that it was St. Francis of Assisi who gave him the name of Bonaventure after curing him of a serious and life-threatening childhood disease. In 1238, he became a Franciscan and devoted himself to teaching theology and scripture in Paris. Bonventure died in 1274 and he was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1588.
