      Mathew, others know far more than I and hopefully can recall sources.
      It seems to me Steiner's somewhat frequent mentions of St. Teresa
      indicate her writings are very beautiful, somewhat sensuous while
      missing out on a deep/true comprehension, that she choose an "inner
      pathway to the spiritual" rather than the outer pathway, thereby
      reaching the spiritual within herself rather than the true Spiritual
      via Christ Jesus. This isn't to say she was without merit, but perhaps
      to highlight some of the differences in these two paths. It seems to me
      I also recall Steiner saying something to the effect that her "ecstasy"
      and unconscious states may have arisen via her inner deeply
      contemplative inner experiences.
