Book Description Mowbrays., London, UK, 1978. Softcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 8vo - 21.5 x 13.5 cm.; 280 pp. First published by Faber in 1952. The original work by Scupoli has been readily available in English translation. This present work is the result of a translation into English, with some editing, of a volume with a history. First written in Latin then translated into Greek plus the addition of another shorter work of Scupoli's by Nicodemus, a monk of Mount Athos in the eighteenth century. Nicodemus gave the work the title "Unseen Warfare". This book was then translated into Russian by Bishop Theophane the Recluse who also made some editorial changes and additions. It is this later work that has now been translated by E. Kadloubovsky and G. E. H. Palmer into the English we have here. A new introduction is given by H. A. Hodges. Of the earlier work, it is said that St. Francis de Sales carried this book in his pocket for twenty years and read it each day which brings us back to the beginning again as this treatise, Spiritual Combat and Path to Paradise (or Peace of Soul) is actually attributed to various authors, most probably the first sketch was done by Dom John de Castanifa, a Spanish Benedictine, and the finishing of it done by Dom Scupoli, a Theatine of Italy. Leaving all that aside this particular copy has a previous owner's name on the first page and other than some very mild wear to the cover edges, appears to have been used very little if at all.
