"According to Sacred Origins of Profound Things, by Charles Panati, Greek monastic theologian Evagrius of Pontus first drew up a list of eight offenses and wicked human passions:. They were, in order of increasing seriousness: gluttony, lust, avarice, sadness, anger, acedia, vainglory, and pride. Evagrius saw the escalating severity as representing increasing fixation with the self, with pride as the most egregious of the sins. Acedia (from the Greek "acadia," or "not to care") denoted "spiritual sloth."

this is something is interested in myself so ill do a bit of research myself see what i can find out.

The sin-eater saves the dying not only from hell, but also from wandering the earth as a ghost - thereby performing a service for the living as well. In some traditions, sin-eaters perform their work for the moribund, while in others, the ritual takes place at the funeral. The sin-eater is usually associated with the British Isles, but there are analogous customs in other cultures as well.

well i hope I can dig up on sin-eater ,i've heard alittle bout it before

I watched a really great movie called, "The Last Sin Eater".
If you haven't watched it already, I recommend it. (It's not a documentary)

The History Channel is doing a series of documentaries on the seven deadly sins including origins and histories for each. I saw the one on lust a couple weeks ago. It was certainly interesting.

I have no idea about the sin-eaters though.
