Thinking Aloud
Darin Davis: Acedia (Sloth)--A Medieval Deadly Sin Still with Us Today
Thinking Aloud goes medieval tonight (kind of) when our guest Darin Davis speaks about one of The Seven Deadly Sins: sloth, or in Latin, "acedia." Acedia was a pressing concern half a millennium ago because so many cloistered monks and nuns were beginning to be smitten with it. It's still with us today, though, and Darin Davis will explore how and why.—Original airdate: 11/11/2015
