Home and Adventure : An LDS Contribution to the Virtues and Vices Tradition
Dialogue : A Journal of Mormon Thought
Recent years have seen renewed scholarly interest in the tradition of the virtues and vices. This tradition has roots in both Judeo-Christian and Greco-Roman ethics, and reached the height of its Western cultural importance during the medieval period. Since that time, many artists and thinkers have continued and further developed the virtues and vices tradition. Here, Tucker explores the possibility of just such an LDS contribution and examines four lists of virtues common to LDS culture.
