A powerful epic mini-series shot on location in Spain that tells the story of one of the most amazing women in history, St. Teresa of Avila. With meticulous attention to detail and historical accuracy, outstanding production values, and an incredible performance by actress Concha Velasco as Teresa, this acclaimed major film production is the definitive film on the life of this great saint.

Teresa of Avila was called by God to reform and renew the Carmelite order, a daunting task. She was joined in this work by her great fellow Carmelite and spiritual director, St. John of the Cross. This film reveals the conversion that Teresa herself had to go thru to deepen her own union with Christ as she endeavored to bring about that same deeper spiritual reform of her Carmelite order. It shows the tremendous opposition that she and John both faced within (and without) their order to bring about this much needed spiritual renewal. She and John of the Cross were both great mystics who combined the essential dimensions of a profound spiritual life with the very practical aspects of being completely dedicated to the human tasks necessary for such a reform.

This DVD has the following language tracks: Spanish with English subtitles.

Includes a 16 page Collector's booklet. Also has many Special Features, including: Documentary on the Making of the Film, Behind the Scenes Footage, Interviews with Actress and Director, Biography of St. Teresa and St. John of the Cross and much more! 3 discs, run time: 450 minutes.

This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories)

    St. Teresa of Avila was a surprise ...

    I ordered this movie because I wanted to learn more about St. Teresa of Avila. I didn't realize the entire movie was in subtitles when I bought it but my husband and I must have really been enjoying it because we watched/read all three DVDs haha!! It helped me to understand more about her life and all she went through to serve God. Even with the subtitles I am still giving this 5 stars :)

    St. Teresa of Avila (DVD)

    This is an excellent account of the life of St. Teresa of Avila. I would watch it every year when it would air on EWTN but haven't seen it come out lately. It's a long 9 hour movie and full of insight into her wonderful life!
