The Seven Deadly Sins


I was wondering where and when we go the Seven Deadly Sins? Thanks and God Bless.


The earliest I know is that St. Gregory the Great enumerates the seven sins in his very large work on the Book of Job, called Moralia in Job.

Sorry, I have no reference, and I don’t know if that’s the earliest. I just know I’ve read them before in that work!
