17th century author covers the central aspects of true piety: the sacraments, prayer, the principal Christian virtues, etc. Contains a wealth of teaching. Although written for lay people, it does not offer a properly lay spirituality. Of most benefit to those with discernment and experience in the ascetical struggle.
