Description

This study resolves the seeming conflict of will and humility in the life of St. Teresa by examining her relationship with the secular world, nuns, superiors and God. Santa Teresa de Jesus has been called by the historian R. Trevor Davies 'the greatest woman in Spanish literary history' and 'an outstanding example of the energy and practical ability that goes with the mystical character'. Born in 1515, this woman of Jewish extraction went on to become one of Spain's greatest Christian mystics and the founder of an Order that in her lifetime grew to sixteen convents and fourteen priories, and after her death spread throughout Europe and into the Americas.
