Example text

Fernando Durán’s contribution on religious autobiography is anchored in the notion of genre as its unifying principle. Perhaps the most ambitious piece in this volume in terms of exhaustive coverage, José Adriano de Freitas Carvalho’s magisterial treatment of Portuguese mysticism (delimited to include individuals who lived in Portugal, whether of Portuguese nationality or of foreign origin, but excluding Portuguese authors who lived and produced their works abroad) does not define itself by genre, but instead chronologically: it covers the period 1515–1630, which was indeed the apogee of mystical activity throughout much of the Hispanic world.

PART ONE LARGER TRENDS RELIGIOUS AUTOBIOGRAPHY Fernando Durán López From ancient times—suffice it to mention the name of Saint Augustine— religion has been one of the principal motivations for writing an autobiography. In these personal narratives flow together two central streams of religious experience: the introspective and the political; in other words, the one which journeys to the inside of a person’s conscience in search of self-knowledge and the one which goes out to seek a community with whom to share a system of values, formulating for one’s peers a testimony of one’s own acts with apologetic and proselytizing purposes.

50–68. 12 At that point such works were identified fully with the religious context in which they were generated, fitting into a system of thought which had an eye toward total control over society. On the other hand, the internal evolution of the genre goes hand-inhand with the changes experienced by Spanish Catholic spirituality: movements of spiritual renewal at the beginning and Counter-Reformation rigor later on. The process described by Herpoel of progressive self-consciousness and mastery of rhetorical mechanisms by these authors is accompanied—although it might seem contradictory—by an increase in ecclesiastical control over these texts.
