The Seven Heavenly Virtues[edit]

The seven heavenly virtues were derived from the Psychomachia ("Contest of the Soul"), an epic poem written by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius (c. AD 410) entailing the battle of good virtues and evil vices.

These seven virtues are:

  • Chasity,
  • Temperance,
  • Charity,
  • Diligence,
  • Patience,
  • Kindness, and
  • Humility.
