Chapter Summary

Sin is lawlessness or a vice that conflicts with the law of God. Although this sin was committed by Adam and Eve, the apostle assigns it only to Adam as the head and universal beginning of the whole human race, from whom Eve, too, had been created. Some of the papal theologians hold that it was pride, others gluttony whereby one's parents ate the apple before it was right to do so. Others hold that it was lack of self-control whereby they had intercourse while not yet being married. The punishment specific to the man was a certain singular worry and anxiety for the things that he was to manage throughout the whole course of his life. The punishment specific to the woman was a very great hardship in child-bearing and in the upbringing of children.
