Mysticism and Narcissism

A Personal Reflection on Changes in Theology during My Life as a Cenacle Nun

Author(s): Kathleen Lyons
Subjects: Religion , Gender Studies

Book Description

Mysticism and Narcissism details the exceptional personal narrative of a long-serving Cenacle nun during a time of particular historical significance for the Catholic Church. The book’s unique and original approach is highlighted by its application of psychoanalytic theory to questions of theological and Marian identity and relationality, exploring narcissism and mysticism within the context of religious life.

In addition, it provides an excellent historical resource for the study of women’s religious orders in the twentieth century and in analysing the impact of Vatican II on the self-understanding of all women.
