Description: From the time Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) entered a convent at the age of sixteen, she exhibited an independence of spirit not readily tolerated by the sixteenth-century Catholic Church. Her expansive nature, intensity, and energy would fuel a lifetime of accomplishment, including, most significantly, the reform of Carmelite convents and the writing of a body of work that today is considered the cornerstone of Christian mysticism.

In a finely wrought, multidimensional portrait of Teresa, Cathleen Medwick brings to life a woman of very human contradictions: a devoted daughter of the Church who bent the rules -- and barely survived the Spanish Inquisition -- to achieve her goals; a practical, no-nonsense manager whose very personal brand of spirituality manifested itself in flamboyant, arguably erotic, raptures; a woman who, despite debilitating illness, traveled around Spain with the assurance (if not the authority) of a man to organize and strengthen Carmelite communities. Writing with sensitivity and humor, Medwick reveals the devout and wordly woman behind the centuries-old iconography of the saint.
