Product Description

The Spiritual Combat & A Treatise on Peace of Soul

by Dom Lorenzo Scupoli
247 pp. paperback

 Salvation and spiritual perfection should not be sought haphazardly; a strategy is needed to win the battle for our souls. The Spiritual Combat, first published in 1589, provides timeless guidance in spiritual discipline. St Francis de Sales (1576-1622) read from it himself every day and recommended it to everyone under his direction. Vigorous, realistic and full of keen insight into human nature, The Spiritual Combat consists of short chapters based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either “fight or die”. Fr. Scupoli shows the Christian how to combat his passions and vices, especially impurity and sloth, in order to arrive at victory.

  1. Are you ready to get serious?

    Posted by Andrew on 22nd Feb 2017

    This is one of the best books on the spiritual life that I've read! It shows that attaining perfection and heaven is a battle...and even more an adventure. Are you ready to embark on this adventure? And the Treatise on Peace of Soul at the end tells us how to do it with peace and joy!
