This study explores the relationship between slavery and the theological concept of original sin in late ancient Christianity. The link is discussed in terms of three intersections, namely “nature”, or “naturalness” and “unnaturalness”, domination, and kinship. These intersections shed light on the very conceptualization of the sin-as-slavery concept, and show that in many instances late ancient thinking differed considerably from classical conventions. Even though sin was considered as slavery, it took more than a millennium for the church to realize that slavery is sin.
