Teresa’s experienced religious "visions", which were dismissed by the Catholic church, as women were widely believed to be hysterical by nature (hysterikós means “related to the uterus” in Greek). Religious ecstasy was often seen as a manifestation of the natural mental instability of women. Teresa’s confessors berated her to the point that she, herself, began to doubt the authenticity of her own experiences. However, with the help of other priests, among them supportive Jesuits, she found the self-confidence she needed to forge ahead.
Moral of the story: trust your instincts, and stay true to your convictions, ladies.
This Saint Teresa print started off as an India Ink & watercolor painting, then was digitally transformed through the Adobe Creative Suite.
