The seven deadly sins are pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, greed, and lust. The seven virtues are prudence, fortitude, temperance, justice, faith, hope, and love. This book brings all of them together and for the first time lays out their history in a collection of the most important philosophical, religious, literary, and art-historical works. Starting with the Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian antecedents, this anthology of source documents traces the virtues-and-vices tradition through its cultural apex during the medieval era and then into their continued development and transformation from the Renaissance to the present. This anthology includes excerpts of Plato's Republic, the Bible, Dante's Purgatorio, and the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche and C. S. Lewis. Also included are artworks from medieval manuscripts; paintings by Giotto, Veronese, and Paul Cadmus; prints by Brueghel; and a photograph by Oscar Rejlander. What these works show is the vitality and richness of the virtues and vices in the arts from their origins to the present.

Review:

Shawn Tucker’s anthology offers a delightful journey through classic works of philosophy, theology, art, and literature with a heavy dose of wit. The structure of the book is crucial to its success. ... With its well-chosen selections, insightful argument, and memorable imagery, Tucker’s anthology is a useful collection for those interested in a wide variety of fields. Students of history or philosophy, art or literature, and theology or ethics will find value in the pages of this book, as it promises to serve as a resource to which they return again and again. (Derek R. Davenport Reviews in Religion and Theology)
