In the Archives of the Carmel of Lisieux - the official website of the Little Flower


Welcome to the Archives of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus

Doctor of the Church !

It contains everything you need to find out more about Therese, allowing you to look deeper into her work and the genesis of her thinking. As you will discover, the young Carmelite of Lisieux had the genius to make use of the texts, documents, images and objects of her time. Living with them and nourishing herself with them, she transformed them and was able to create a written work that is valuable for all periods and times. By presenting you with all of these treasures, we move from conservation to conversation.
