Mother Teresa was one of the most written about and publicised women in modern times. Apart from Pope John Paul II, she was arguably the most advertised religious celebrity in the last quarter of the twentieth century. During her lifetime as well as posthumously, Mother Teresa continues to generate a huge level of interest and heated debate. Gëzim Alpion explores the significance of Mother Teresa to the mass media, to celebrity culture, to the Church and to various political groups. A section explores the ways different vested interests have sought to appropriate her after her death, and also examines Mother Teresa's own attitude to her childhood and to the Balkan conflicts in the 1980s and 1990s. This book sheds a new and fascinating light upon this remarkable and influential woman, which will intrigue followers of Mother Teresa and those who study the vagaries of stardom and celebrity culture.

A personality of Mother Teresa's calibre and global reach does not come about by chance. To provide a well-rounded portrait of this influential figure, this book approaches her in the context of her familial background and ethnic, cultural and spiritual milieus. Her life and work are explored in the light of newly-discovered information about her family, the Albanian nation's spiritual tradition before and after the advent of Christianity, and the impact of the Vatican and other influential powers on her people since the early Middle Ages. Focusing on her traumas, ordeals and achievements as a private individual and a public missionary, and her complex spirituality, this book contends that Mother Teresa's life and her nation's history, especially her countrymen's relationship with Roman Catholicism, are interconnected. Unravelling this interconnectedness is essential to understanding how this modern spiritual and humanitarian icon has come to epitomise her ancient nation's cultural and spiritual DNA.

LEADERS WHO CHANGED THE WORLD The birth of Agnes was not an extraordinary event, but her death was. The world mourned her passing. Mother Teresa, or St. Teresa of Calcutta, was born Anjezë (Agnes) Bojaxhiu, in northern Macedonia, thousands of kilometers away from the city she later came to love and be associated with. Her journey—out of her small European village and to the ailing world as a young Catholic nun—was paved with struggles, both internal and external. She is known as one of the greatest humanitarians in recent history. By the time of her death in 1997, she had captured the hearts of millions. Not everyone agreed she was worthy of praise, though. Criticisms of her work and motivations continued throughout her life and after her death. However, neither her critics nor her supporters knew that she had experienced a spiritual struggle for decades. Regardless of criticism, wherever she went, she offered fervent prayers for peace and encouraged joy amidst suffering. Read all about the revered saint’s trials and tribulations in these pages. LAURA K. MURRAY is the author of more than 80 published or forthcoming educational books. Her creative nonfiction, fiction and poetry have appeared in The Talking Stick, River Valley Woman, and elsewhere. She lives in Minnesota.
