Summa de vitiis (Summary of the Vices) is an influential Latin treatise by medieval French theologian Peraldus, or William Perault (c. 1190–1271), written to encourage virtuous living. This page belongs to a section addressing sloth, which is described as a sin of omission – neglecting good through occupying a state of physical and spiritual lethargy.
