My paper today traces the methodological rationale for my research into the 16th century Christian mystic St Teresa of Avila and the function of language within her mysticism. The practice-led research seeks to develop a new, closer reading of her mystical writings through emulation of her mystical praxis from the perspective of my practice as a visual artist; in order to uncover and map how her ecstatic mystical experiences functioned in relation to language, I attempt to approach her texts in a similar manner to that in which she approached the Divine through Scripture.
