Autobiographical Accounts of Spiritual Experience

Picture of Timothy Gallagher

List Creator Says: "I've tried to choose those which are really at the top, most of them saints or others in process of canonization, and a few others who are well known and whose autobiographical writing is spiritually rich and classic. It has meant leaving out many other wonderful writers in this genre (Hilda Graef, Angela of Foligno, Eugenio Zolli, etc.), but that is the point of the "ten top" in a category, I suppose."
