Life of Father Baltasar Alvarez is a reflective biography with a sixteenth-century style focused on Christian asceticism and the efforts of martyrdom and purgation of Father Baltasar Alvarez.
It is a first-hand testimony, of great interest to those who study the principles of the care of the spirit in the history of religions. It is the work of Luis de la Puente at a time of expansion of the Society of Jesus, to which Father Baltasar belonged.

To the Christian reader
The Ecclesiasticus having taught his people of Israel, and in him all men, the precepts of the divine law, and many counsels and warnings of great perfection, he then wanted to put before their eyes the heroic examples of their forefathers, who kept them with great excellence, and therefore were worthy before God and men of eternal glory and praise, that they might dare to imitate them, and by this means attain the glory and honor which they attained. And on the way he fulfilled the obligation he had to refresh and perpetuate the memory of such men, who by their exploits illustrated their nation, praising and magnifying more especially those who were their teachers, from whom he learned the wisdom he taught, to pay for the good that dellos had received. Let us praise, he says, the illustrious men, who were our fathers and progenitors, with whom God showed his magnificence in past centuries, and won for himself great glory, who were men great in virtue, endowed with much prudence, and with it manifested the divine secrets of the Prophets, which were enclosed in their books, They ruled their people and communicated holy words to them. They were rich men, and put their chief study in virtue, and lived peacefully in their houses; they attained great glory among their people, and in their days were praised by all; and those who were born dellos were left with names to tell their praises.
