The Spiritual Combat
"The Spiritual Combat" is a practical "guide" to the spiritual life, with a message centered on humility, and a goal to defeat individual passions. The process begins with self-evaluation and identifying our internal weaknesses. The author then provides us with the methods to battle these shortcomings and guard against our own evil inclinations. Lorenzo Scupoli (c.1530-1610), was born in Otranto, Italy. He was admitted to the religious order of the Theatine Regular Clerks of St. Cajetan, in 1571, and by his desire, was called Lorenzo of Otranto. He later went to Milan, under the provost St. Andrew Avellino. After many years of active duties, he retired into strict seclusion and wrote "The Spiritual Combat." Since its introduction, four centuries ago, approximately six hundred editions have been published globally.
