Original Sin and Its Consequences

Original Sin and Its Consequences

(p.38) 2 Original Sin and Its Consequences
The Transmission of Sin

Pier Franco Beatrice

Oxford University Press

Augustine set out to refute the Pelagian doctrines in full possession of an organic conception of the history of salvation, which he had developed in the course of decades of study and continual rethinking. The imposing edifice of his teaching on original sin is based on a number of foundational ideas. This chapter illustrates those ideas, without undertaking a detailed and punctilious exposition of the anti-Pelagian writings.

Keywords:   original sin, St. Augustine, Pelagian doctrine, salvation
