dc.description.abstractThe aim of this research project is to clarify the relation of the nuns Francisca Josefa de Castillo (1671-1742), Jerónima Nava y Saavedra (1669-1727), Francisca del Niño Jesús (1665-1708) and Gertrudis de Santa Inés (1668-1730) with their own bodies. For this matter, the body has been analyzed from the perspective of performativity, which explains the embodiment of the ideals prevailing in specific periods of time depending on the individual, in this case, that period of time is the New Granada in the years when these nuns lived. The above entails the partition of the body in three, found in the writings of the nuns: the social body, the terrestrial body and the body of the soul. In order to analyze the body as a whole, and its process of sociological, symbolic and lived construction, this thesis takes as important parts of this process the following: pain as a symbolism of death, desire and writing, all the above contained in the figure of the imitation of Christ.en_US
