Catherine of Siena Libro del Dialogo, el qual tracta de la divina providentia de la seraphica et dilectissima sposa del dolcissimo salvatore nostro Iesu Christo, suore del terzo ordine di sancto Domenico (Venice: Cesare Arrivabene, 1517) .

The Notre Dame copy of this volume lacks a title page.

The book contains the Italian text of Catherine of Siena's Dialogue of Divine Providence. The work is preceded by an epistolary proemium in Italian treating St. Catherine's life, "per el reverendo padre... fratre N. de Iordine de sancto Domenico," whom we have not yet identified. This Vita is followed by the Latin letter of canonization by Pope Pius II (1460). The printer Cesare Arrivabene was active in Venice in the first quarter of the sixteenth century.
