An exceedingly rare and valuable 17th-century monastic instructional manual for nuns!

 

La monaca instruita’ by Giacinto Perpera is a thorough guide for nuns, teaching them of the importance of strict behaviors and morals. Perpera, also known as Epebert (Melzi, p. 357), covers obedience, the Eucharist, poverty, chastity, and silence, as well the divine office, liturgy, and prayer. It seems, however, that prayer is clearly the most important aspect of this book as more than a quarter of the entire work is devoted to teaching on prayer.

 

This 1695 printing is a stunning example of 17th-century monastic literature, printed in Genoa.
