This website replaces my plan to write a book that would unlock to spiritual seekers and spiritual guides the depth of wisdom offered by Catherine of Siena. I share here what I have learned as a scholar about this remarkable woman.
I have studied Catherine of Siena’s spirituality since I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation on a comparison of discernment according to Catherine and Ignatius of Loyola and have continued to do research and to write about her.
I write for the spiritual seeker and for spiritual guides and pastors, as I am convinced that Catherine’s wisdom can help the spiritual seeker today.
As well, students of Catherine’s spirituality will benefit from this summary of her life and teachings, together with the historical and textual context included here. Students of medieval women mystics, and scholars may also find material of interest.
