He was recognized as having a most accurate knowledge of the sacred rites, and was elected to the Superior General of his Order, and named perpetual consultor to the Sacred Congregation of Rites by Pope Urban VIII. This is his magnum opus, which was first published in Milan in 1628. In this work, Gavanto traces the historical origin of the sacred rites, discusses their mystical significance, gives rules for their observation and obligation of the rubrics, and adds decrees and brief explanations bearing on the subject-matter of the work.
