“Silverio of Saint Teresa is the religious name of Julián Gómez Fernández, a Discalced Carmelite friar, born in Escóbados de Arriba (Burgos), on the 8th of March 1875 and died in Mazatlán (México), on the 11th of March 1954. He was General Historian, editor of the works of Carmelite saints and Superior General of the Order. One of his greatest contributions to Carmelite studies was the annotated edition of the works of Teresa of Jesus and John of the Cross”.
Thus, begins the entry on Fr Silverio inserted, 140 years after his birth, in the famous digital encyclopedia “Wikipedia”, through the initiative of the General Curia of the Discalced Carmelite friars and the Teresianum in Rome. The drawing up of the note and business of having it inserted in “Wikipedia” was given to Brother María José Pérez, from the Puçol Carmel in Valencia, Spain. Without his help it would have been absolutely impossible to achieve this initiative. We heartily thank our brother for his patient and persevering dedication to this task.
