Second edition (first Rome 1804) of this account of the life and miracles of Elisabetta Picenardi (1428–1468) of the Servite Order, who was beatified in November 1804 after Pope Pius VII issued confirmation of her local cultus. The work is attributed to the Camaldolese monk Isidoro Bianchi (1731–1808). Another edition was published in Picenardi's home town of Mantua in the same year.

No copies traced outside Italy. OCLC records one copy of the Mantua printing (at the BL), but none of this Cremona edition.
