The Soul encounters the Virtues but finds the path they propose difficult. Responding to her corporeal impulses and the enticements of the Devil, who promises pleasure and success, she casts off her white garments. The Virtues sing of the Soul as a negative example, while the Devil insults them. The Soul ends imprisoned by her mortal will.
