Aegidius: Sententiae Vere Aureae
Sententiae Vere Aureae by Aegidius (1534)
As the book's title explains: Sententiae vere Aureae sancti Patris Aegidii Assisinatis, omnibus ad Christianam perfectionem aspirantibus utilissimae. Aegidius (Giles) of Assisi was one of the companions of Saint Francis. You can read more about him in this Wikipedia article. His "dicta" were collected during his lifetime and issued in Latin, as well as being translated into other languages. You can find the The Golden Words of the Blessed Brother Giles (an English version published in 1907) here at GoogleBooks.
