Quick Reference

Loosely knit groups of spiritual persons who lived a retired life of prayer and contemplation in 16th-cent. Spain. It is unclear whether several of them were unorthodox, but some Alumbrados were certainly spiritually unbalanced and were treated severely by the Inquisition; others have been canonized.
