Gratian came from a family of respected humanists who served as royal secretaries to King Philip II, and he left behind an extensive collection of his own works.

These include accounts of his life, that of Teresa and of the early years of the Teresian reform, reflections on prayer and devotions and other topics of a theological and philosophical nature. Little of this is readily available in English translation. The small treatise translated in this volume , written in the form of a parody of religious legislation, was chosen because of its brevity and its humor. Also included in this volume is a biographical sketch and a reflection on Gratians positive teaching.The Discalced Carmelite Order has begun the process for the beatification and canonization of Jerome of the Mother of God.
