Grace of Jesus Christ had joyn’d to his Illustrious Birth a more solid Piety; and that Piety was truly according

to Knowledg, since it was illuminated by that Divine Light which he had drawn from the holy Scriptures, the Councils and Fathers. The Example of his Life and the Remembrance of his Virtues, ought to induce not only the Great of the world, but likewise those who are below their condition, to follow the same Maxims which this Prince prescribed himself for his own Conduět. It is therefore our opinion that this Treatise is not only conformable to the Rules of the Catholick and Apoftolick Church, but that it will be so much the more useful, that it teaches a most pure and most holy Morality, which may serve for the In. struction of all sorts of Perfons.
