Translated by Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD, and Otilio Rodriguez, OCD Contains Way of PerfectionInterior Castle, and Meditations on the Song of Songs.
Includes general and biblical index.

This volume contains two of Teresa's most popular works: The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle.

Shortly after writing The Book of Her Life for her confessor, St. Teresa wrote The Way of Perfection at the request of her nuns who were eager to learn about prayer and contemplation. Throughout this work she teaches her nuns about prayer and also teaches us.

Toward the end of her life, after she had experienced both the spiritual betrothal and spiritual marriage, Teresa wrote The Interior Castle, her own panoramic view of her relationship with God, from the lowest stages to the highest. Teresa here demonstrates her great gift for writing about that relationship and attracting us to explore the possibility of pursuing it.

Along with these two classics, Volume Two also includes one of Teresa's minor works, her Meditations on the Song of Songs. Includes general and biblical index.
