Treatise on Purgatory The Dialogue Translated by CHARLOTTE BALFOUR and HELEN DOUGLAS IRVINE 6/net Here, under one cover, is a new translation made by Helen Douglas Irvine, of two spiritual classics. It was for long thought that both were by St. Catherine. It is now fairly certain that the Dialogue was written by her goddaughter, Battista Vernazza. But, as the translator notes, it "reproduces the incidents of St. Catherine's spiritual life as these arc recorded in her earliest biography, and its doctrine is that embodied in the Treatise on Purgatory and in her recorded sayings, from which even its language is in large part derived."
