Carmelite Studies Series
This volume of Carmelite Studies presents new insights into the lives and writings of individuals who knew Teresa of Ávila in life and who, after her death in 1582, worked to propagate and defend her legacy, including the illustrious nuns Ana de San Bartolomé, Ana de Jesús, María de San José, and Ana de San Agustín, and her close male confidant and collaborator, Jerónimo Gracián de la Madre de Dios. A further focus of the essays is the reception of the Teresian heritage by individuals outside the order, as mediated by these early Discalced Carmelites and by Teresa's published writings.
Ten members of the Institute of Carmelite Studies contribute to this volume honoring their Carmelite brother and colleague, Fr Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD on his fifty years as a Catholic priest.
This newest volume of our popular Carmelite Studies series features twelve original contributions by contemporary scholars and theologians, experts in the Carmelite tradition.

The book’s theme is taken from a Carmelite Spirituality seminar held at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. In addition to essays by those original Carmelite Forum presenters, it includes new contributions from seven other respected authors and Carmelite scholars from the United States and Europe.
