Envy (Latin, invidia)
Like greed, envy may be characterized by an insatiable desire; they
differ, however, for two main reasons. First, greed is largely
associated with material goods, whereas envy may apply more generally.
Second, those who commit the sin of envy resent that another person
has something they perceive themselves as lacking, and wish the other
person to be deprived of it. Dante defined this as "love of one's
own good perverted to a desire to deprive other men of theirs."
In Dante's Purgatory, the punishment for the envious is to have their
eyes sewn shut with wire, because they have gained sinful pleasure
from seeing others brought low. Aquinas described envy as "sorrow
for another's good".
