Classic manual of spiritual devotion; summarizes the religious attitude of the Devotio* moderna and gives it expression. Divided into 4 parts: admonitions useful for spiritual life; admonitions to promote interior life; discussion of interior dispositions of the soul; discussion of Holy Communion. Authorship disputed for centuries. Inseparably connected with Thomas* à Kempis; probably best traced to 4 of his 13 indep. treatises. Content derived esp. from Devotio moderna literature.
