Discalced Carmel in Mexico

Discalced Carmel in Mexico

A book with the title “La presencia de la orden del Carmen descalzo en la Nueva España” [“The presence of the Discalced Carmelite Order in New Spain”], has been published in Mexico concerning our order and the figure of Teresa of Jesus in that country. The volume also seeks to identify the artistic, historical, and largely cultural heritage that Carmel’s presence has marked on Mexican society, visible in today’s urban spaces, not just religious ones.

Edited by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), the book which was coordinated by Yessica Ramírez Méndez and Mario C. Sarmiento Zúñiga, derives from an academic meeting that took place in 2015, on the occasion of the fifth centenary of the birth of Saint Teresa of Jesus, a fundamental figure of the order of Carmel, and 430 years after the arrival of this congregation in what was then called New Spain.
