Teresa of Ávila - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1764 words)
Saint Teresa of Ávila (known in religion as Teresa de Jesús, baptised as Teresa de Cepeda y Ahumada) (March 28, 1515 - October 4, 1582) was a major figure of the Catholic Reformation as a prominent Spanish mystic and writer and as a monastic reformer.
She was born at Ávila (53 miles north-west of Madrid), Old Castile and died at Alba de Tormes (province of Salamanca).
The deeply pious and ascetic ideal after the example of saints and martyrs was instilled in her at a young age by her father, the knight Alonso Sánchez de Cepeda, and especially by her mother, Beatriz d'Ávila y Ahumada.
