Collection of three texts pertaining to the internal rules of the Jesuit Order. The first two were edited by the Order's 6th General Superior Claudio Acquaviva. He is regarded as the second founder of the order (after Saint Ignatius of Loyala) because he succeeded in an enormous expansion of the Order during the 35 years of his leadership. The third book was edited by the Order's general secretary Bernardus de Angelis and published on the occasion of the 7th General Congregation which was held upon the death of Acquaviva in 1615. .
