Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Mercies

RME resource based on 15th century carvings at Rosslyn Chapel

Is there such a thing as good and bad?

How do good and bad manifest in real life? What is our responsibility for our behaviour, and what are the consequences of our actions? Explore these moral and philosophical questions using the Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Mercies resource on the amazing carvings from Rosslyn Chapel.

Depicting the Seven Deadly Sins and the Seven Acts of Mercy from the Christian tradition, these 15th century carvings open up an opportunity for debate, self-examination and self-expression. The pack contains fact sheets and activity ideas that can adapted for different curricular levels to suit your classroom teaching.
