Description:

Pride, anger, avarice, gluttony, sloth, lust, and envy all manifest themselves in Dr. Faustus throughout the play. Not only do they manifest themselves within the psychological understanding of the play, but the seven deadly sins also appear as characters in the plot. Through his use of the seven deadly sins, then, Marlowe is demonstrating the path to damnation in relation to the developing Christian theology of his day.
