Abstract

Abstract:

This paper examines the discourse in the eighteen spiritual letters Sor María Manuela de Santa Ana (1695-1793) wrote to Father Pedro Loayza, the originals of which are compiled in Volume II of her compiled writings, as a study of identity and female agency by the writing subject. Discussion focusses on the double-voiced nature of these texts as their discourse negotiated the fine line between "being heard" and "being rejected" by male readers within hierarchy of the Catholic Church in the Early Modern period in Peru.
