Exploring the relationship between her mystical experiences and her spiritual teachings, our attention is drawn to the significance of her visions, raptures and ecstasies, and to the symbols she used to express her experiences. Focuing on Teresa not only as a mystic but as a woman, the author draws us into the life of this remarkable and influential character, examining her place in the Western mystical tradition as well as addressing the issue of women's spirituality." Fifteen pages of notes and references, a 5 page bibligraphy and a 7 page general index. The library markings, none of which are external, are a stamp on the title page and attachments on the inside of the back cover and the blank verso of the last page.
