Product Details

In this intriguing series, HISTORY examines the impact of the seven deadly sins on mankind throughout the ages. We learn how the concept originated - as a way to keep a lustful fourth-century monk from sinning again - and how they were pared down from eight to the seven we recognize today: gluttony, lust, greed, anger, sloth, envy, and pride. For the Catholic faithful they became a guide on the path to heaven. To repeat offenders, they promised damnation in Hell and very specific, very gruesome punishments. Gluttons, for instance, would be force-fed rats, toads and snakes. The warnings couldn't be clearer: Succumb to any of the seven deadly sins and God's judgment will be severe. This series consists of 7 x 1.0 hr episodes. 12/29/08 Lust 12/30/08 Envy 12/31/08 Gluttony 1/1/09 Sloth 1/2/09 Greed 1/3/09 Anger 1/4/09 Pride
