A major International Conference to celebrate the Teresian Quincentenary.

This conference explored the mystical theology and spirituality of Teresa of Avila from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. Arising in the context of the late medieval Carmelite tradition, the conference paid attention to the origins of her interpretation of the tradition and how this has given rise itself to multiple new discourses.

Leading academics and practitioners in the field discussed the importance of Teresa from historical, philosophical, pastoral, ecumenical, psychological and aesthetic perspectives.
