G.B. Scaramelli was a Jesuit father who was born in Rome in 1687 and died in Macerata in 1752. He entered the Society of Jesus at the age of 19 and spent 30 years in active ministry as a missionary. He was the author of 5 works in all, the most important of which are the directories, Il Direttorio Ascetico and Il Direttorio Mistico. The latter appeared originally in Venice in 1754 and was translated into several languages, but it wasn’t until 1913 that this English edition appeared.
