SERRANO PEREZ, Agustina. Contentarse con la finitud o atreverse a gustar la transcendencia . Teol. vida [online]. 2006, vol.47, n.4, pp.575-613. ISSN 0049-3449.

Saint Theresa of Avila was rediscovered in the second half of the 20th century and attributed an empirical magisterium of experience. From the starting point of the separation between the mystical and the theological, a dialogue is invoked that overcomes the dilemma between finitude and infinitude. The author is still valid today, and present in post-modernity. Her work Interior Castle treats of human growth, establishing a parallelism with chronological age, from sixteen years old-the moment to face fundamental options regarding existence-up to approximately forty years of age, the stage at which a fundamental break is produced. The hypothesis that this investigation presents is: Human reason can resolve its congenital dilemma. In the work studied, it is formulated in this manner: to be content with finitude or dare to taste transcendence, and stakes itself on the Holy Spirit capacitating reason so as to overcome the dilemma and fulfill itself astonishingly in love. Valuable insights are offered in the work that permit access to the depths of human life, traveling through different dwellings, through which diverse existential dilemmas are confronted
