about

Originally published in 1909, this book contains an English translation of The History of the Foundations, the sequel to Saint Theresa's Life. While the Life focuses more strongly on purely spiritual matters, the Foundations is highly informative in terms of secular history and the practical aspects of Theresa's existence. Illustrations are provided throughout, including a map showing the sites where Theresa founded Carmelite institutions. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the life of Saint Theresa, Spanish history, and the development of the Catholic Church.
