      Teresa was an incredibly gifted teacher whose devotion to the sublimest
      task--the guidance of others toward spiritual perfection--has resulted in the
      widespread fame of her writings. Interior Castles deals with the extraordinary
      richness of the developed interior life.


      From the Publisher
      One of the most celebrated works on mystical theology in existence, as timely
      today as when St. Teresa of Avila wrote it centuries ago, this is a treasury
      of unforgettable maxims on self-knowledge and fulfillment.

      About the Author

      Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), also called Saint Teresa of Jesus, was a Spanish
      nun and one of the great mystics and religious women of the Roman Catholic
      Church. She was the leader of the Carmelite Reform, which restored and
      emphasized the austerity and contemplative character of the Carmelite order. Canonized
      in 1622, she was elevated to Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI in 1970, the
      first women to be so honored.
      All three volumes were translated by E. Allison Peers, the translator of many
      great works of Spanish verse and mysticism.

      Book Description
      Celebrated for almost five centuries as a master of spiritual literature, St.
      Teresa of Avila is one of the most beloved religious figures in history.
      Overcome one day by a mystical vision of a crystal castle with seven chambers,
      each representing a different stage in the soul's spiritual quest for union with
      God, Teresa recorded her vision in this now classic text. Probably her most
      important and widely studied work, The Interior Castle guides the spiritual
      seeker through each chamber of the castle to the center and the soul's final union
      with the divine.

      Free of religious dogma, this contemporary rendering is a beautiful and
      practical set of teachings for seekers of all faiths in need of guidance. Mirabai
      Starr's introduction places this classic in a contemporary context, reasserting
      its spiritual and literary importance close to five hundred years after it
      was first published.
