The Excellences of the Oratory
Father Francesco Antonio Agnelli
The text of the Excellences, as published in 1881 by Messrs. Burns and Oates, having been long out of print, is here transcribed for the use of the sons of St Philip Neri, who may copy it for their own use and the use of aspirants to the Congregation of the Oratory. The spelling and punctuation, peculiar though they be, have been preserved except for a few obvious errors, though translations of Latin quotations have been inserted. No attempt has been made to modernize or improve upon the author and the translator. The Excellences remains still in our own century excellent as a guide to the spirit of the Congregation of the Oratory, and will be useful in the formation and reformation of our brethren.
