——–

These, it is presumed, contained the headings of the chapters. Unlike the Life and the Foundations,
the text of the Castle is divided only by figures, without indication of the contents of each chapter,
32
but the arguments which have come down to us are so entirely similar to those of the two works
named, that it is impossible to consider them otherwise than the genuine work of the author. In the
present translation they have been inserted in their proper places.
On the occasion of the ter-centenary of Saint Teresa’s death, a photo-lithographic edition of
the original was published under the direction of Cardinal Lluch, Carmelite of the old observance,
Archbishop of Seville:
El Castillo Ynterior ó Tratado de las Moradas,
escrito por Sta. Teresa de Jesús.
Litografia de Juan Moyano (Seville) 1882.
The present translation, the third in English,28 has been made directly from this autograph
edition. It has been thought advisable that, as far as the genius of the language allows it, the wording
of the author should be strictly adhered to, and that not even a shade of her expression should be
33
sacrificed. For Teresa is not only a saint whose every word is telling, but she is a classic in her own
language who knows how to give expression to her deepest thoughts. Having compared word for
word the translation with the original, I am in a position to affirm that this programme has been
faithfully carried out. For the foot-notes—with few exceptions—as well as for the Index, I am
responsible. It seemed to me important to point out all the parallel passages from the various works
of the Saint. Only by this means can it be seen how consistent Saint Teresa is in all her writings.29
It would have been easy to multiply quotations from the works of other writers on mystical theology.
Thus, the influence of the Imitation of Christ and of the Life of our Lord by Ludolphus the Carthusian
can be distinctly traced in the Interior Castle. Both these works, as well as some Spanish books,
were held in such esteem by St. Teresa, that she ordered the prioress of each convent to keep them
at the disposal of the nuns. As there is a limit to footnotes, I have contented myself with such
references as seemed to me conducive to the elucidation of the doctrine laid down in this treatise.
34
In conclusion I venture to express the hope that this new translation will be found helpful by
those who feel called to a higher life.

28 The first translation is to be found in the Works of the Holy Mother St. Teresa of Jesus (third part). Printed in the year
MDCLXXV, pp. 137-286. It bears the title: The Interiour Castle: or, Mansions. As to the authors of this translation—Abraham
Woodhead and another, whose name is not known—see my book Carmel in England, p. 342, note. It is stated there that the third
part, containing the Way of Perfection and the Castle, has no title-page. This is true with regard to the copy I had before me
when writing that book. The one I have now is more complete.
The second translation, by the Rev. John Dalton, appeared in 1852 and has been repeatedly reprinted. It was dedicated to
Bishop Ullathorne.
Of foreign translations it will be sufficient to mention the one by Cyprien de la Nativité, in Œuvres de la Sainte Mère Térèse
de Jésus, Paris, 1657, and the new one in Œuvres already mentioned.
29 The present translation ought to dispose of the reservations expressed by an able critic in his otherwise valuable appreciation
of the works of the Saint. See Santa Teresa, by the late Alexander Whyte, D.D. London, 1898, p. 32.
Criticisms which have appeared in various papers, or have been privately conveyed, have been gratefully received and
acted upon in the second and the present edition.
