Title: Seven Deadly Sins


1
Seven Deadly Sins
  • By C. Wallace

2
Seven Deadly Sins
  • Also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins
  • They were enumerated in their present form by
    Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century.
  • They were first derived from the eight evil
    thoughts as described by Greek monastic
    theologian Evagrius of Pontus.

Eight Thoughts of Evil
  • Gluttony
  • Fornication
  • Love of Money
  • Discontent
  • Anger
  • Despondency
  • Vainglory
  • Pride

From Eight to Seven
  • St. John Cassian in his Conferences describes
    the eight principal vices as gluttony,
    fornication, avarice, anger, sadness, acedia
    (anxiety), vainglory, and pride.
  • It was not until the 6th century that St. Gregory
    the Great (then Pope Gregory I) described the
    seven sins in his Moralia in Job.

5
Ranking of Sins
  • St. Gregory the Great ranked the sins in
    seriousness based on the degree from which they
    offended against love.
  • It was from least serious to most
  • Lust
  • Gluttony
  • Sadness (would later be replaced by sloth)
  • Avarice
  • Anger
  • Envy
  • Pride

The Seven Deadly Sins (present day)

  • Wrath
  • Envy
  • Pride (the worst)

7
Each sin
  • Is a particular way of failing to love God with
    all ones resources and to love fellows as much
    as self.
  • In 1589, Peter Binsfeld paired each of the deadly
    sins with a demon who tempted people by means of
    the associated sin.
