I have suggested in a previous post (Monday Musings: Head, Heart, and Hands) that as classical Christian educators we are aiming to produce students of wisdom and virtue. Classically, seven virtues have stood at the forefront of education and life: Fortitude, Justice, Prudence, Temperance, Faith, Hope, and Love (or, Charity). The first four are called the Four Cardinal Virtues, while the last three are known as the Three Theological Virtues (cf., 1 Cor 13). These virtues serve as a helpful focal point at which to aim in our pursuit of wisdom and virtue.
How have you found success in inculcating these virtues in students through education? What books have you found helpful for exploring these virtues?
