Juniper ( ?-1258 )

The servant of God Juniper, best known as Brother Juniper called "the renowned Jester of the Lord," was one of the original followers of St. Francis of Assisi . Not much is known about Juniper before he joined the friars. In 1210, he was received into the Order of Friars Minor by St. Francis himself. "Would to God, my brothers, that I had a whole forest of such Juniper "
