Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins have had an enormous impact on the moral compass of the modern world. How exactly have the sins been understood in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, and why do some argue they have even greater significance than the Ten Commandments?

If it's true, as many believe, that the Apocalypse is coming, then the seven deadly sins are the ultimate emergency preparedness checklist.

In this series, each of the seven sins will be revealed with ominous CGI animation. We will explore the nature of the sin, its opposing virtue, and its corresponding punishment. We will also trace the history of the sins, and will look at historical figures who have been the worst perpetrators of each. Finally, we will shed light on just how guilty you yourself are.
