Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions: History, Culture, Religion, Ideas contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, acknowledgments and a list of contributors. The book represents a selection of the research stimulated by the author's summer seminar on "The Seven Deadly Sins as Cultural Constructions in the Middle Ages". More specially, the seminar dealt with the medieval development of the seven deadly sins as concrete examples of vitally-important ethical ideas which experienced new and constantly changing definitions even as the vocabulary used to articulate them in a series of shifting communal, institutional, and individual surroundings remained remarkably stable. The book examines these issues and describes what can be added to previous scholarship on the vices.

Keywords: cultural constructions; medieval traditions; Middle Ages; reformation traditions; seven deadly sins
