Among these are the works of De Ponte and Nieremberg, the "Spiritual Combat", the "Imitation of Christ" and the short treatises of Bellarmine. All these translations have passed through a number of editions. He also edited and revised "The Devout Life" of St. Francis De Sales and the "Fondements" of Pere Surin, S.J.
