This article discusses the concept of courage e stemming from the ancient European traditions of this virtue e systematically analyzing 45 management studies that deepen the role of such virtue in business organizations. From the analysis, three major themes emerge: 1) the concept of courage in organizations, the concept of moral courage in organizations, and 3) the concept of collective courage of organizations. Moreover, ﬁndings show that management research on the virtue of courage has progressed over the years and that e notwithstanding its strong European roots e the studies involved in the conversation are mainly not based in Europe. The contribution of this article is threefold. First, it sheds light on a still under-researched virtue, pointing out its relevance in business contexts. Second, it clearly highlights that a shift is occurring in scholars interest, as an organizational and collective perspective of moral courage is slowly emerging. Finally, it shows that management scholars mainly embrace Aristotles view of the virtue of courage, discarding the Christian approach introduced by Aquinas.© 2019 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
