Book by St Teresa of Avila, The Life Of St Teresa Of Avila Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Life Of St Teresa Of Avila books, The works of Spanish nun SAINT TERESA OF AVILA (1515-1582) rank among the most extraordinary mystical writings of Roman Catholicism and among the classics of all religious traditions... and her own life story is considered one of the finest autobiographies in any language. From her carefree childhood through her life as an ascetic Carmelite nun, from her visions of Satan through her worship of God, this is her passionate yet earthy retelling of her struggles with temptation, her work founding and ruling convents, and her devotion to God. Hailed by those seeking spiritual succor as one of the most accessible guides to achieving a closer relationship to God through prayer, this extraordinary book remains a commanding entry to numinous Christianity.

Teresa Of Avila And The Politics Of Sanctity

Book by Gillian T. W. Ahlgren, Teresa Of Avila And The Politics Of Sanctity Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Teresa Of Avila And The Politics Of Sanctity books, "An important addition to our understanding and the current reconstruction of one of the best-known mystics, reformers, and spiritual writers in history."--Church History "An ambitious book. . . . [Ahlgren] seeks to 'contextualize the life of Teresa the woman and the meaning of Teresa the saint within the Counter-Reformation agenda by exploring the complex and conflicting notions of female sanctity at work in sixteenth-century Spain.' The compelling arguments of the book make it worth reading. . . . Perhaps Ahlgren's most significant contribution to Teresian scholarship is her meticulous assessment of the prolonged theological debate that took place over [Teresa's] person and writings after her death."--Sixteenth Century Journal "This [book] is indispensable to understanding the saint's motivations and accomplishments. Beginning with a carefully documented analysis of the religious climate before the Valdes Index of 1559, Ahlgren focuses on the alumbrados and holy women who claimed spiritual authority on the basis of visions and mental prayer. . . . Impeccably researched and distinguished by a thorough grasp of the theological and political issues of sixteenth-century Spain, the volume is a brilliant argument for how and why Teresa of Avila authorized in writing and action her belief that 'the discovery of God's presence in the soul is a spiritual imperative for all people.'"--Theological Studies

The Mystical Gesture

Book by Mary E. Giles, The Mystical Gesture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Mystical Gesture books, These essays ecplore the spiritual culture shared by texts and writers in Western Europe from the 13th to 17th centuries; the visionaries, mystics and nuns who were poets or scholars and the creative writers who drew on spiritual themes. The topics range chronologically from the late 13th to late 17th centuries and geographically from Germany, England, Italy, France, Spain and New Spain (Mexico), though the volume's centre is the spiritual culture of 16th-century Spain. Common concerns of each essay are the exploration of spiritual culture; how some texts and writers shape expectations attending the life of the spirit; and how they are in turn shaped by them.
