José Gómez Menor Dies

On June 16, the Toledan historian and priest, Don José Gómez-Minor, died at the age of 91.

Author of numerous works on the lineage of Saint John of the Cross in Toledo, Gómez-Menor devoted much of his work as a historian to the study of topics related to the Teresian Carmel. In 2011 he published a definitive work on the Saint entitled “Raíces Históricas de San Juan de la Cruz” [“Historical Roots of St John of the Cross”] in which was a prologue by the famous Spanish writer José Jiménez Lozano, also deceased this year.

He collaborated with him in the Professor Santiago Sastre edition, with whom he appears in the photo that accompanies this report.
