The author : Pierre de Villiers, the abbot of Villiers (born in Cognac in 1648 -?) Is a French abbot and writer. He entered the Jesuits first in 1666 and after in 1689 in the order of Cluny. He wrote many books in the seventeenth century, and many biographies and studies are attributed to him, such as the Letters on the Prayer of the Quietists or Prayer in Verse on the hope that one must have in Jesus Christ. The Abbe de Villiers is the first to suspect that the tales of Perrault were not written by the son of Charles Perrault, as announced by the editors, but by the academician himself-or at least in second Hand.
