Quick Reference

One of the traditional seven deadly sins, and the particular enemy of many of the early Christian fathers, including saints Jerome, Anthony and Augustine. Unfortunately the term is apt to stray in meaning, sometimes covering sexual desire in general, but sometimes confined to sexual desire in which the other person is merely used, or seen as a mere object. In Spanish and Italian the sin is called ‘lusuria’, which has different connotations again. See love, sex.

Subjects: Philosophy.
