(p.2) (p.3) Introduction
The Transmission of Sin

Pier Franco Beatrice

Adam Kamesar

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with brief discussions of the Greek patristic sources of the Augustinian doctrine of original sin, and the division between Catholic scholars over whether the doctrine of original sin should be ascribed to Augustine. It then sets out the book' purpose, which is to identify the possible sources of the Augustinian teaching about original sin. It aims to reexamine practically everything that ancient Christianity has said and handed down on the subject of original sin. In short, the investigation requires what is essentially a rewriting of the history of the doctrine in the patristic age.

Keywords:   original sin, St. Augustine, Greek theology, Greek patristic sources, Christianity
