Chapter Summary

This appendix presents prose of Hildebert of Lavardin, The Complaint and Quarrel of the Body and the Soul. Before the decree of life-giving fasting was violated by the fatal food, the inhabitants of paradise had suffered no difficulty there: there was nothing from the body that troubled the soul, nothing from the soul that offended the Creator; nothing, the author repeat, nothing at all, to diminish their pleasures or shatter their innocence. Of their equal success in glory and justice, Augustine writes in his City of God: Man lived in paradise just as he wished, he said, as long as he wished for what God had commanded.
