I’ll see here Morente research on the theory of personality that is behind the mystique of Juan de la Cruz. Although Morente does not have the depth of Aquinas, his study is very interesting. Morente shows how in Juan de la Cruz’s mystique a concept of person underlies as subsistent individual of rational nature. From the own dynamism of the mystical experience and of its purgative routes, both of the sense and of the spirit, there is revealed that the concept of person in Juan de la Cruz connects with that of Boethius

Key words:

Ascetic, Mystic, person, personality, God.
