Ignacio de Loyola y Teresa de Ávila. Inspectores de Espíritus : Institución y Carisma en los albores da la Era confesional

Fabián Alejandro Campagne


After During the late Middle Ages, the discernment of spirits went through a revolutionary transformation: from a wonderful charism invested by the Holy Ghost, it became a human science, based upon probabilities and conjectures, and under the tight control of the theological corporation.
