Above, the punishment of the sins as illustrated by Alfalfa Studio.

The story began in the fourth century with Evagrius the Solitary. He was a lonely monk who made a list of eight evil thoughts. Two hundred years later, with a little editing by Pope Gregory the Great, Evagrius’ evil thoughts resurfaced as the seven deadly sins. Since then, the infamous set of seven has been a popular and perennial theme in art, literature, and around the world.

The ubiquitous set inspired the first collection of alfalfa seeds graphic t-shirt line. Check them out here.
