“For the wages of sin is death” (Romans VI,23)
Peter Binsfeld prepared a classification of demons in 1589 known as the Princes of Hell. His demon classification was, like the earlier English Lanterne of Light, based on the seven deadly sins, though it differed slightly from the English text.
- Lucifer: pride
- Mammon: avarice
- Asmodeus: lust
- Leviathan: envy
- Beelzebub: gluttony
- Satan: wrath
- Belphegor: sloth
It is Binsfeld’s classification that most scholars know and the classification we will be using in this effect. The seven deadly sins are character vices and the origin of sins, dating back to early Christian times. The seven deadly sins are wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony. In 1589 German bishop Peter Binsfeld coupled each sin with a demon responsible for the temptation related to the sin.
This effect comes with 3 routines included in the instructions and has an extremely easy to remember and learn marking system. Also, visible to the performer even in poor light. The cards are high quality and durable tarot sized.

An excellent mentalist/card routine using the Seven Deadly Sins as the thesis to the story of temptations on humanity. The cards are well made and the artwork gives the tarot type cards a degree of vintage and Victorian style age. Made for the storyteller and mystic that pushes into the depths of the human psych. Congrats to Vince Wilson on this twist in mentalism and psychic entertainment.

These are well crafted and offer an endless possibility of effects around the 7 Sins. Treat yourself to a set of these, you won’t regret it. The artwork on the cards is just beautiful. I’m very pleased that I was able to get a set of these.
