Product Description

The Life and Writings of Saint Camilla Battista Varano, OSC

A comprehensive look at the life and writings of St. Camilla Battista Varano, OSC.

St. Camilla Battista da Varano (1458-1524) was an erudite Poor Clare nun from central Italy. Her canonization in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI has generated great interest in her life and writings. The daughter of a powerful Renaissance duke, Camilla grew up passionate for the courtly life. When she was a girl, however, her conversion began when she shed a little tear each Friday in memory of Christ’s Passion. She entered a convent where Camilla Battista wrote extensively: spiritual exhortations, meditations, poems, letters, descriptions of her mystical experiences, an autobiography, prayers, and treatises for living the spiritual life. Because of the profundity of her writings, some theologians and cardinals who participated in her canonization process are advocating for her to be proclaimed Doctor of the Church.
