SAINT AND NATION  Santiago, Teresa of Avila, and Plural Identities in Early Modern Spain

by Erin Kathleen Rowe


SKU: 4594 Category:


In the early 17th century Spain, the Castilian parliament voted to elevate the newly beatified Teresa of Avila to co-patron saint of Spain alongside the traditional saint, Santiago. This book examines the Spanish devotion to the cult of saints, and the controversy surrounding this move. Contrasts the views of local peoples, royal authority, the nation, church and state officials, and men and women.
