This chapter sums up the key findings of this study about convent life in colonial Mexico. It traces the history of the proliferation of women's monasteries and female spirituality and highlights the role of women in the evangelization of New Spain. This chapter also argues that women's spirituality in the colonial period was a complex mixture of rules, forms of observance, daily rituals and prayers, personal and community discipline, and devotional practices.

Keywords:   convent life, colonial Mexico, women's monasteries, female spirituality, evangelization, New Spain, forms of observance, daily rituals, community discipline, devotional practices
