Title: Caminhos e invenções da santidade feminina em Portugal nos séculos XVII e XVIII : Alguns, dados, problemas e sugestões
Publisher: Porto : Universidade do Porto. Faculdade de Letras
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: This work draws on available data and factual examples (particularly from the feminine social sphere) to establish the relationship between, on the one hand, a growing search for sanctity during the XVII century and the first half of the XVIII, and, on the other hand, the proclamation of silent prayer and contemplation which should be practiced by the secular world. Due to these circumstances and concurrent fear of degradation of spiritual life, we try to describe in this research work the need felt in that period to warn, identify and repress the ecclesiastical authorities responsible for the promotion of “true sanctity” and persecution of the “false one”, stressing that, in spite of the important role played in social life by a growing number of “intercessors” and “beatified persons”, time did not create an autonomous and specific lay spirituality, but instead the continuous appeal for religious and cloistral models prevailed.
