(6) Bartra ha emprendido un analisis similar de los parecidos entre la melancolia y la acedia
en el cristianismo; la primera no precisaba de un castigo, mientras que la segunda era considerada como pecado (Cultura 159).
The pope uses the popular Spanish expression acedia
to explain the near total loss of apostolic energy in church personnel.
Prison has been to Mailer what acedia
was to Coleridge, what "habitual self" was to Keats, and what poverty was to Emerson, the most emphatic possible conception of imaginative death.
To make it easy to remember the church coined a word SALIGIA with the first letters in latin of superbia, avarita, luxuria, invidia, gula, ira and acedia
His solo exhibition, titled The Garden of Acedia
, is a continuing revelation of Marcel's existentialist concerns.
It involves both overvaluing and undervaluing, both self-aggrandizement and self-effacement, both pride and passivity, both arrogance and acedia

(12) Since Aquinas writes after the translation of Aristotle's Metaphysics, he must, in Blumenberg's view, accept that all knowledge is good and locate curiositas not in the mere quest for knowledge beyond the faith, but in "a superficial dwelling on the object" that remains "content with truths" rather than with "the truth." (13) Where Aquinas connects that "superficial dwelling" to acedia
, Blumenberg detects a premonition of the modern eagerness to conquer nature: acedia
suggests an eagerness to give up on knowing God and to address the problems of this life.
Fala-se da melancolia como sinonima do furor dos alienados, da acedia
dos monges, da genialidade na Renascenca, da tristeza no Romantismo e da depressao tratada atualmente por psiquiatras e psicologos (Pringent, 2005).
