Abstract

This work intends to follow the literary itinerary of D. Frei Inácio de Santa Teresa, archbishop of Goa and later bishop of Algarve, in order to draw his catechetic paradigm from the books he owned “the means to that end: tear vices, embrace the virtues”. The prelate belonged to a group of bishops, who distinguished themselves by their rigourism seeking, through the path of a perfective life and mental prayer, to seed the love of God within their areas of influence.
