A little over a week ago in Madrid, we happened upon an exhibit in honor of the 500th birthday of St. Teresa of Jesus.
Here’s a nice, short video on the exhibitions’ set-up:
It was absolutely lovely. All the placards were in Spanish, but as far as I could tell, the presentation was straightforward, without revisionary or contemporary diversions. It features lovely statuary and paintings, and lots and lots of editions of her work, including manuscripts written in her own hand. I was overwhelmed.
Read St. Teresa herself…not necessarily what others say about her…but more on that later.
