Virtues and Vices in Renaissance Art | Arttrav.com

Virtues and Vices in Renaissance Art | Arttrav.com | Ms. Lawrence's House of Humanities | Scoop.it

There are seven virtues and seven vices, and each of these are divided into sub-groups of 3+4 – which are all significant numbers in the Christian tradition. The three Theological Virtues are faith, hope, and charity. Being theological they are more important (at least in religious circles). The four Cardinal Virtues derive from Plato’s Republic and are somewhat more difficult to interpret: temperance, prudence, justice, and fortitude.
