Scarce second edition (first Cagliari, 1575–6) of an exhaustive compendium of theological questions compiled by the Spanish Franciscan Anglés (d. 1586), bishop of Bosa in Sardinia. 

The first part is devoted to the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church viz baptism, confirmation, the eucharist (including transubstantiation), penance (including contrition and confession), anointing the sick, holy orders, and matrimony (including bigamy, adultery and divorce, and impediments to marriage such as consanguinity).  In the second part Anglés considers the keys to heaven, indulgences, excommunication, church discipline, restitution, contracts, resurrection, the last judgement, blessedness, and the torments of the damned. 

EDIT16 CNCE 1896; USTC 809510.  OCLC records only one copy in the US (University of Southern California) and two in the British Isles (Cambridge University Library, University College Dublin).
