Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. II:
City of God: Book XIV

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 262

Book XIV. 638

————————————

Argument—Augustin again treats of the sin of the first man, and teaches that it is the cause of the carnal life and vicious affections of man.  Especially he proves that the shame which accompanies lust is the just punishment of that disobedience, and inquires how man, if he had not sinned, would have been able without lust to propagate his kind.
