INDEX OF AUTHORS

have relations with her confessor, embraces him, throws herself at his 

knees, pursues him, and so becomes a cause of scandal. When brought to the 

asylum, there is intense sexual excitement, and she masturbates a dozen 

times a day, even when talking to the doctor. The sexual organs are 

normal, the vulva moist and red, the vagina is painful to touch; the 

contact of the finger causes erectile turgescence. She has had no rest, 

she says, since she has learned to love her Jesus. He desires her to have 

sexual relations with someone, and she cannot succeed; 'all my soul's 

strength is arrested by this constant endeavor.' Her new surroundings 

modify her behavior, and now it is the doctor whom she pursues with her 

obsessions. 'I expected everything from the charity of the priests I have 

known; I have not deserved what I wanted from them. But is not a doctor 

free to do everything for the good of the patients intrusted to him by 

Providence? Cannot a doctor thus devote himself? Since I have tasted the 

tree of life I am tormented by the desire to share it with a loving 

friend.' Then she falls in love with an employee, and makes the crudest 

advances to him, believing that she is thus executing the will of Jesus. 

'Necessity makes laws,' she exclaims to him, 'the moments are pressing, I 

have been waiting too long.' She still speaks of her religious vocation 

which might be compromised by so long a delay. 'I do not want to get 

married.' Gradually a transformation took place; the love of God was 

effaced and earthly love became more intense than ever. 'Quitting the 

heights in which I wished to soar, I am coming so near to earth that I 

shall soon fix my desires there.' In a last letter Therese recognizes with 

terror the insanity to which the exaltation of her imagination had led 

her. 'Now I only believe in God and in suffering; I feel that it is 

necessary for me to get married.'"
