A native of Puebla de los Angeles, Mexico, Sor María Anna authored many spiritual texts. She was also the subject of a published biography, written by her last confessor and Jesuit spiritual director, Fr. Joseph Bellido, and a funeral sermon, written and delivered by Fr. Juan de Villa Sánchez. The daughter of a Spaniard and a criolla mother, María Anna Aguilar Velarde chose a religious career and entered the beatorio de Santa Rosa de Santa María in Puebla. Once a member of this monastic shelter for lay religious, she worked diligently to change it to a full-fledged Dominican convent and became its first abbess.Jennifer Eichs literary analysis primarily focuses on the Dominican nuns four mystical/theological treatises.

Indeed these treatises are remarkable. They constitute a form of spiritual autobiography since she recounts in them her personal mystical experiences and devotional practices that led her to mystic transport.
