Following Mr. White's Most Gracious Lead


I offer the following finds--

Carmel in England: A History of the English Mission of the Discalced Carmelites, 1615 to 1849

Carmel in Ireland: A Narrative of the Irish Province of Teresian, Or Discalced Carmelites

What is most remarkable is that given present concerns, these arrive at a most propitious time.

Now here's one for engendering humility:

egends of the Monastic Orders as Represented in the Fine Arts Anna Jameson. From which, this excerpt:

"Neither as an Order, nor as individuals, are the Carmelites interesting or important in their relation to art."

The Library of Historic Characters and Famous Events of All Nations and All Ages For those famaliar with Dumas, this recounts the life of Louise de la Vallière; Mother, Duchess, first mistress of King Louis XIV, and eventually, cloistered Carmelite nun. Certainly a candidate for Saints Behaving Badly--only it would have to be Latter-Day Holy People Who Don't Have a Cause Behaving Badly.

Letters of Said Duchess

Spanish Mystics by Marguerite Tollemache

Also to be found on the site are complete biographies of St. Josemaria Escrive, In Converstation with God, various volumes of the Navarre Bible, and other Opus Dei and Sceptre publications.

Santa Teresa: Being Some Account of Her Life and Times, Together with Some Pages from the History Gabriela Cunninghame Graham

Anyone care for the works of Orestes Brownson?

Complete on-line edition of Charles Carroll of Carrollton: Faithful Revolutionary--Scott McDermott

A list of Publications related to Charles Carroll of Carrollton

This could go on forever, but you take a try at it. Amazing things available.

Once again, deep appreciation to Bill White who not only first alerted me to the resource, but who continues to mine its treasures.
