Chapter Summary

This bibliography section of the book The Seven Deadly Sins: From Communities to Individuals contains a list of primary and secondary reference texts to the book. 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," which was held at Darwin College, Cambridge University, July 12-August 13, 2004, and was supported by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. 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.

Keywords: cultural construction; medieval tradition; seven deadly sins
