What exactly have historians, playwrights, philosophers, humourists, poets, politicians, and others had to say about the Seven Deadly Sins, humanity's constant companions? In this collection of thoughts, homilies, witticisms and warnings, internationally renowned historian, Ronnie S Landau, examines the place of the Seven Deadly Sins - pride, envy, wrath, greed, sloth, gluttony and lust - within world culture and consciousness over the past 2,500 years. Penetrating and thought-provoking, often irreverent, this rich assembly of ideas aims to challenge the way we think about our emotions, frailties and predilections. Culled from every conceivable source and discipline, it will make you smile, grimace, glow and fume - but, above all, reflect on the human condition.

When Stanford M. Lyman authored The Seven Deadly Sins: Society and Evil in 1978 it was hailed by Alasdair MacIntyre as "a book of absorbing interest and importance...[that] places us all in his debt." By Nelson Hart as "a masterful and thought-provoking book...[that] is the only scholarly treatment of sin that is so well-informed by the best of ancient through modern perspectives." By James A. Aho as a work whose "abstract hardly does justice to the scholarly and detailed analysis of sin." And by Harry Cohen as a "book...[that] stands as a beautiful illustration of what holistic, idiosyncratic, interdisciplinary, and creative thinking and writing can bring to bear on the age-old problem of society and evil." The American Sociological Association's section on the Sociology of the Emotions selected this book as one of the works that laid the foundations for the study of pride, lust, envy, and anger—basic sentiments embedded in the social process. For this revised and expanded edition Lyman has written a new chapter, "Sentiments, Sin, and Social Conflict: Toward a Sociology of the Emotions." The new edition will be a valuable work for courses in social psychology, ethics, deviance, and the sociology of morals and of religion.

In this book, John Mabray will help you win those battles by pointing you again and again to Jesus Christ and His means of daily transforming grace as you face the most common and challenging temptations for us all."

John Mabray provides transforming insights into God's word on the spiritual battles challenging every believer. His writings answer many questions for those who desire to live an effective and victorious Christian life." Dr. A. Pierre Guillermin Co-Founder and President Emeritus Liberty University "The seven deadly sins are just as deadly today as they were a thousand years ago. John Mabray makes that clear. He makes something else radiantly clear: only with, through, and in Christ can we conquer the evil that threatens our lives. The reader of this book will find extremely helpful spiritual direction for conquering the enemies of our souls." Sandy Willson, Senior Pastor Second Presbyterian Church Memphis, Tennessee This is the meatiest, most accessible, and most spiritually challenging book I have ever seen on the seven deadly sins.

Medicine and the Seven Deadly Sins in Late Medieval Literature and Culture

This book considers how scientists, theologians, priests, and poets approached the relationship of the human body and ethics in the later Middle Ages. Is medicine merely a metaphor for sin? Or can certain kinds of bodies physiologically dispose people to be angry, sad, or greedy? If so, then is it their fault? Virginia Langum offers an account of the medical imagery used to describe feelings and actions in religious and literary contexts, referencing a variety of behavioral discussions within medical contexts. The study draws upon medical and theological writing for its philosophical basis, and upon more popular works of religion, as well as poetry, to show how these themes were articulated, explored, and questioned more widely in medieval culture.
