The manuscript of this work was discovered in the nineteenth century 'in an inside wall about fourteen inches thick in the Hoar Abbey at Cashel'. The text, edited by John MacKechnie, is a treatise on the monastic life addressed by a spiritual advisor to a nun. It has been described as 'possibly the dullest of the Society's publications'.
