Gorres at Munich. One day the conversation turned on a remark in tfyat deep writers Philosophy of Mysticism, to the effect that saints most re markable for their mystical learning and piety were far from exhibiting, in their features and expression, the characteristics usually attributed to them. They are popularly considered, and by artists represented, as soft, fainting, and perhaps hysterical persons ;whereas their portraits present to us countenances of men, or women, of a practical, business-like, working character. The author asked Gorres if he had ever seen an original likeness of St. Teresa, in whom he had thought these remarks were particularly exempli fied.
