For nearly two decades scholars such as Sara T. Nalle, Elizabeth Rhodes, Alison P. Weber, and Keith Whinnom have called our attention to the non-canonical religious literature of early modern Spain. Certainly, Hispanists have for long paid attention to the literary production of St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross, and Fray Luis de León. Yet the lesser known luminaries of early modern Spanish spirituality remain largely neglected in contemporary scholarship. This panel is open to presentations that discuss representative figures of early modern Spanish spirituality and their literary production in the vernacular. Proposals should include references to specific methodological or theoretical approaches to be drawn upon for the analysis of texts. Priority of consideration will be given to papers focusing on figures of the period including the afore-mentioned classics, i.e. St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross, and Fray Luis de León, in their relation to other religious writers. The projected panel(s) will take place as part of the 2010 annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America to be held in Venice, Italy.
