Seven Deadly Sins


The concept of vices that are fundamental to all sins has existed throughout the history of Christian theology. Pope Gregory the Great (c. 600 AD) was the first to formulate the seven deadly sins more or less as we know them today. This book combines a contemporary poem of the same title by Jane Q. Spears with images and text from a 12th Century Latin Bestiary and watercolor paintings by Alicia Bailey.
