Walk with Teresa of Avila through her most profound mystical work: The Interior Castle.
Five hundred years ago, Teresa of Avila was born in Spain to the family of Cepeda y Ahumada. At the age of 20, she became a Carmelite nun. Despite her lack of formal education, Teresa would go on to become an inspirational mystic, an influential reformer, and the first female Doctor of the Church.
Today, her spiritual works are widely acclaimed as timeless masterpieces. Now, in this course, you will explore her most beloved work, The Interior Castle (El Castillo Interior). In this classic of Christian literature, St. Teresa will bring you on a journey towards the ineffable divinity of God.
Inspired by a vision she received from God, The Interior Castle illustrates the soul as a castle, with each of its chambers bringing you closer to God. As you move through such "dwelling places" as self-knowledge, the prayer of recollection, and the Paschal Mystery, you will achieve greater peace and a more contemplative understanding of prayer.
The Interior Castle has been cherished by Christians and non-Christians alike for centuries. Teresa of Avila is a woman with timeless wisdom, a wisdom that is especially apt for spiritual seekers of this new millennium. Share in her wisdom today.
