Spiritual Combat - Scupoli

  • I'm looking for a complete and legible copy of the book Spiritual Combat by Lorenzo Scupoli. Specifically the 1884 edition published by Suttaby and Co.
    All of the electronic and print-on-demand versions that I can find are quite poor; missing pages, text on some pages unreadable.
    It's a beautiful translation that I think should be put back into print.

    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer

  • Mother of Our Saviour Inc. has it for sale, not necessarily the 1884 edition:

    Otherwise, I could try to transcribe a version of it for you myself. It'll take me a couple months. It's a little hobby I have during downtime at work (which I have a lot of).
    "The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: ‘Here is the wolf!’ when it enters the flock or anywhere else." -- Saint Francis de Sales

    "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:" [2 Timothy 4:3]

  • Thanks DL! MOS's is the 1945 edition; it's good, I just prefer the 1884. If I can find a complete copy I might take you up on the offer to transcribe it.
