PART ONE LARGER TRENDS RELIGIOUS AUTOBIOGRAPHY Fernando Durán López From ancient times—suffice it to mention the name of Saint Augustine— religion has been one of the principal motivations for writing an autobiography. In these personal narratives flow together two central streams of religious experience: the introspective and the political; in other words, the one which journeys to the inside of a person’s conscience in search of self-knowledge and the one which goes out to seek a community with whom to share a system of values, formulating for one’s peers a testimony of one’s own acts with apologetic and proselytizing purposes.

To the Spanish mystics of the early modern period, God speaks at all hours (not only God, but also the Virgin Mary, the saints, the virtuous departed, and the demons); for these women aim to be something that Augustine never was: prophets. God uses them as intermediaries to speak to men, but at the same time there are many other intermediaries between them and the men.
