The first part of the manuscript contains summaries of the Inquisition trials of Miguel de Molinos, Simone Leoni and Antonio Maria Leoni in 1687, leading figures of the Quietist movement in Italy. The second part contains a short description of the Beccarellist doctrine, named after the Italian priest Giuseppe Beccarelli, who was strongly inspired by Quietism and tried for heresy and sodomy in 1710, and a list of principles that the priest had to publicly forswear. The description of the first trial consists of a brief but detailed account of the initial questioning of the suspect, Miguel de Molinos, after which the Quietist thought is illustrated in 263 points, referred to as theses damnatae. The descriptions of the trials of the two Leoni, both accused of heresy, follow a similar pattern to that of Molinos, but they are much shorter and present fewer details. The manuscript does not offer much information about Beccarelli's trial, but rather focuses on the doctrine that he tried to promote; the only account of his trial that appears is a short list of the principles he was forced to publicly forswear before being taken to a Venetian prison.
