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.

  • DISC ONE: Lust / Envy / Gluttony / Sloth
  • DISC TWO: Greed / Anger / Pride
