Dens, Peter, born at Boom, Flanders, in 1690, took priestly orders, and held several ecclesiastical offices at Malines and Brussels. He was a successful popular teacher and a zealous systematiser of theology. Two of his more important works were The Virtue of Religion and The Sacrament of Penance, but the comprehensive text-book of morals and casuistry associated with his name and the cause of much controversy was written by several hands. He died in 1775.
