St. Teresa of Avila's official persona as an active contemplative was promulgated in her Bull of Canonization issued by Pope Gregory XV in 1622. I analyze the interpretation of her saintly persona in visual images produced for her canonization ceremony in Basilica of St. Peter, influenced by a 1613 print series of Teresa's life.
La figura oficial de Santa Teresa de Ávila como una contemplativa activa fue promulgada en su bula de canonización emitida por Papa Gregorio XV en 1622. Se analiza la interpretación de su persona santa en imágenes visuales producidas para la ceremonia de canonización en la basílica de San Pedro, que fueron influenciadas por una serie impresa (1613) de la vida de Teresa.
