Augustyn (św. ; 354-430)   Wyznania   grzech pierworodny   upadek duszy

Abstract:

One of the major problems which Augustine touches upon in the Confessions is the question of the fall of the soul, or the original sin, which has given rise to the existential situation in which all humans live – that of spiritual malaise and death. In this text I examine two significant images of the fall of the soul as they appear in books 2 and 4. My aim will be to demonstrate that suggestive allegories conceal deliberate philosophical content and that both these well-known scenes – I mean those of the theft of the pears from the neighbour’s garden and the death of the close friend – symbolically present two essential aspects of Augustinian conception of the fall of the soul and of sin.
