Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which describes the ascetic spirituality of Juan De Ávila. He came from a judeoconverso family background. At crucial points in his life he experienced the impact of discriminatory policies targeting new Christians and their descendants. His ascetic spirituality was an organic expression of his personal reality; it was an expression of the judeoconverso reality. The book reviews an important scholarly landmark in the study of judeoconverso spirtuality; the work of Marcel Bataillon. Juan De Ávila's spirituality of public service is yet another example of his reach to the laity. He articulated a notion of public service that allowed lay public servants to conceive their secular vocation as a spiritual one.

Keywords: Juan De vila; judeoconverso spirituality; Marcel Bataillon
