Editorial Reviews


This superb edition presents to English-readers the extraordinary Mother Juana de la Cruz, whose visionary sermons and ecstatic “body language” fascinated Spaniards from villagers to Charles V. Ronald Surtz and Nora Weinerth provide masterful translations of Juana’s transcribed sermons and Jessica Boon contributes an insightful introduction to the mystic’s life, religious milieu, and theological discourse. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of religion, gender, and materiality in Spain at the dawn of its Golden Age.
