Distinguishes several different kinds of connection between community and virtue—sustaining, content providing, agency constituting, worth defining, and others—using as a reference point MacIntyre's Is Patriotism a Virtue?A detailed exploration of the example of Le Chambon, a French Protestant village that sheltered many Jews during the Nazi occupation, illustrates these connections. The concept of ‘supererogation’ masks how communities can sustain virtue in its members.

Keywords:   community, Le Chambon, MacIntyre, supererogation, virtue, virtue ethics
