JAMES MERLO HORSTIUS,
OY THE CHURCH OF THE B. VIRGIN MARY IN PASCULO PASTORIS AT COLCGXZ.
BURNS & LAMBERT, 17 PORTMAN STREET,
NOTICE OF THE AUTHOR.
JACQUES MEILO, or Merlo, called, from the place of his nativity, Horstius, was born of poor parents at Horst, a village in Germany, in July 1597. Mabillon is said to have profited much from his edition of the works of St. Bernard. That he was the author, of other devotional works besides the Paradisus Animæ appears from allusions made to them in this work. He was a parish priest at Cologne, in which city he died in the year of our Lord, 1644. May he rest in peace!
[The Devotions marked with an Asterisk are from the Appendix to the Mechlin
edition of 1840.)
