The concept of sin, and with it those of vices and virtues, is changing. The frames of the debate about it are expanding. Morality and ethics are now connected with civil, political, social, and cultural transformations. This volume intends precisely to prove the potentialities of this ever-expanding inter-disciplinary approach. The chapters discuss a wide range of topics related to virtues and vices, sins and transgressions. They provide an indication of the breadth of research and debate on hamartiology, morality, and penance. Innovative, and sometimes provocative, perspectives are structured along the theoretical lines of contextual and essential approaches supplemented with literary and psychological reflections on sin. The heterogeneous nature of each section mirrors the success in bringing together researchers from various academic fields. The result is a volume posing and discussing stimulating and still open questions as 'are we born or taught to sin?' or 'can goodness be taught?'
