Beyond the Threshold by Maria Del Carmen Tapia
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For 18 years Maria del Carmen Tapia was a "numerary" (full member) of Opus Dei and a major superior of the Women's Branch for much of it. She describes what she calls the making and unmaking of a fanatic. There is: the devious recruitment; the forced estrangement from her family; the indoctrination; life in the "Golden Cage" of Opus Dei's governing centre in Rome; her years as head of the women's section in Venezuela; her sudden recall to Rome where for seven months she was held a virtual prisoner; and the reprisals after she left the organization.

Author Biography
