St Teresa of Ávila

The Way of Perfection

Read by Lucy Scott


The 16th-century Spanish Carmelite nun St Teresa of Ávila was a prominent figure in the Catholic Reformation, and her writings have continued to inspire philosophers, theologians, historians and countless others interested in Christian spirituality and mysticism. She distilled her own experience into this beautifully direct and accessible ‘living book’, The Way of Perfection, as a guide for nuns in her convent. Containing practical advice on how to approach the spiritual life, to progress through prayer and meditation, and achieve a greater connection with God, it remains fascinating as a practical and historical document.
