The Life of Santa Oria is the work of Gonzalo de Berceo. Here is the story of a Benedictine nun who lived in seclusion in San Millán de Suso. The work, incomplete, presents two hundred and five stanzas; but the last twenty-one seem added: perhaps by Berceo himself, as many critics suppose.
In the introduction Berceo introduces Saint Oria and recounts her life up to the moment when his visions of the saint begin. He speaks of his homeland and his parents, relates his entry into the monastery and enumerates his virtues. Moreover, he attributes to these virtues the merits by which he will gain eternal happiness after death and the grace of vision in this life.
At the end of the introduction, the three parts—the three visions—on which the poem stands.
In the first, Santa Oria visits heaven. There he contemplates its inhabitants, its organization, its structure and the prize it has won with its works and that is reserved for it.
In the second vision, it is Mary, surrounded by virgins, who visits the penitent. In the meeting he tells her that his prayers and sacrifices have assured him of the prize and that his death is approaching, therefore.
In the third vision, Oria moves to the Mount of Olives and begins to enjoy eternal bliss there. It is then, at the end of the visit, when the death and burial of the inmate takes place. The brief epilogue therefore certifies his triumph.
