Summary: Deepens and refreshes our view of early Christianity while casting a disturbing light on the evolution of the attitudes passed down to us. Pagels examines "the development of the ideas of human nature, moral freedom, and sexuality in the four centuries following Christ.Focusing on thevarious interpretations of the Genesis creation stories, she concludes that early Christians regarded their message to be one of moral freedom and human worth.In the 5th century,
Augustine . . . {transformed this conception} with his view of human depravity and original sin (which he linked with sexuality).She argues that his interpretations, implying human incapacity for true political freedom, appealed to the interests of the emerging Christian state and forged the mainstream of ensuing Christian theology."(Libr J)
