Historian Joachim Smet, O. Carm. offers a glimpse into Carmelite women’s monastic life that spans centuries and continents. Beginning with the affiliation of various individuals and groups, his book takes the reader on a journey through the formation of the first formal monasteries to the successes and struggles of subsequent groups, to the founding of other monasteries beyond European boundaries. Photographs and references complete his account of these cloistered members of the Carmelite family. (Second printing: 2011)
The Carmelite background of St. John of the Cross is examined in this work by historian Balbino Velasco, O. Carm. He proposes that his formation as John of St. Matthias, a little studied aspect of the saint’s life, was as much a contributing factor to his eventual participation in the Teresian reform. Translated by Joseph Chalmers, O. Carm. from the original Spanish with a helpful glossary of terms. – Translated by Joseph Chalmers, O.Carm.
