According to a biographer, Teresa received the whole of the vision for this book on Trinity Sunday, 1577. In unpacking that vision, Teresa created a treasure that has enriched the experience of countless Christians. Teresa was a mystic and renovator of the Carmelite order, a scientist of the degrees of prayer, and yet at the same time an accomplished leader and administrator. Teresa's life repudiates those who would separate the ways of Mary and Martha. Preface by Raimundo Panikkar.
An Eighth Day View:
Teresa (1515-1582), a Spanish mystic, is considered to be one of the most profound spiritual teachers in the history of Christianity. The Interior Castle is Teresa's spiritual masterpiece.
