Category:The Seven Virtues
opposite of the seven deadly sins
The Seven Virtues: According to early and medieval Catholic doctrine, the qualities esssential to an observant Christian life. Though not as strict as that of the opposing Seven Deadly Sins the catalogue of the Seven Virtues was, depending on its source, either understood to include the qualities directly opposite to the Seven Deadly Sins - i.e., abstinence, liberality, diligence, humility, chastity, kindness, and patience - or it was made up of the Four Cardinal Virtues: (prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude) and the Three Theological Virtues (faith, hope, and love / charity).
Among the major depictions of the Seven Virtues in the arts are Giotto's cycle of the Seven Vices and Seven Virtues in the Cappella degli Scrovegni (Arena Chapel) in Padua, Italy, and a number of works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.
