Fortitude (or moral courage) is the strength of mind and character needed to do what is right, no matter how adverse the circumstances or how strong the opposition. In Christian tradition it is considered one of the four cardinal virtues.

There are many historical examples of fortitude, including the early Christians who endured great persecution to spread God's word. Many were martyred rather than do what they thought was wrong or sinful.
