Revision as of 06:33, 11 September 2007 by KarenLarsdatter (edits to link to wikipedia for more on some of the virtues)
A virtue is a character trait valued as being good. The conceptual opposite of virtue is vice.
The virtues are sometimes referred to as collective groups. Some of these groupings include:
- The Theological Virtues: faith, hope, and love or charity
- The Cardinal Virtues: Wikipedia:justice, Wikipedia:fortitude, Wikipedia:prudence, and Wikipedia:temperance
- The Seven Holy Virtues: Wikipedia:chastity, Wikipedia:abstinence, Wikipedia:liberality, Wikipedia:diligence, Wikipedia:patience, Wikipedia:kindness, and Wikipedia:humility
- The Knightly or Chivalric Virtues vary depending on the period or author, but frequently include Wikipedia:courage, Wikipedia:justice, Wikipedia:mercy, generosity, faith, nobility, and hope.
