The two first treatises are entitled, The three gates of the palace of divine wisdom, opened in three dialogues , and, The spiritual ascent, containing eight degrees which lead to the throne of divine wisdom . For the titles, and initial words of all paragraphs, of the other treatises in the volume blank spaces have been left, which have never been filled up.
