This is a work in 30 chapters, dealing with matters of interest to those involved in the spiritual life. The author almost certainly lived in the Persian empire, as there is a reference to the river Zab, a tributary of the Tigris. His name is not known to us. He seems to have written in the late 4th century, or possibly just into the early 5th century.
