Saint Augustine and the Fall of the Soul: Beyond O'Connell by Ronnie J. Rombs

By Ronnie J. Rombs

Augustine's knowing of the starting place of the soul and the character of its fall looms as some of the most vital and debatable questions between Augustinian students for the reason that Robert J. O'Connell first all started publishing at the subject. O'Connell argued that Augustine embraced Plotinus's doctrine that the soul existed prior to the physique and merely fell into physically lifestyles because the results of sin. this sort of place, notwithstanding, is essentially incompatible with Christian anthropology: physically existence is intrinsically corrupted; actual lifestyles is regrettable. The supposition that the main influential Christian theologian after St. Paul maintained this kind of place generated sharp department among students who have been confident through O'Connell and those that weren't. A scholarly consensus at the topic has no longer but developed.

Saint Augustine and the autumn of the Soul: past O'Connell and His Critics presents first a severe exam of O'Connell's theses in a readable precis of his paintings that spanned over thirty years. Secondly, a diachronic learn of Augustine's writings strains the advance of his figuring out of the soul's fall, mapping the bounds of Plotinus's impression.

The examine acknowledges the level to which Augustine embraced Plotinus's ontology and anthropology and the purpose at which he deserted Plotinus. The younger Augustine was once considerably inspired by way of Plotinus, and there's immense facts that he held a Plotinian doctrine of the soul's fall. yet because the anthropological implications that persist with from the Christian doctrine of production ex nihilo turned obvious to him, Augustine departed from Plotinus. Augustine eventually took the soul's fall to be an ethical lapse, protecting Plotinus's imagery vocabulary as a fashion of expressing a psychology of sin, now not an ontological fall.

Augustinian students and scholars in theology and patristics will locate the textual content a useful source at the topic.

Ronnie J. Rombs is assistant professor of theology at St. Joseph Seminary collage in Louisiana. he's the coeditor of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.


"This ebook offers with a major factor, person who Robert J. O'Connell made his life's paintings in his learn of Augustine. He believed that the subject of the fallen soul is on the middle of Augustine's inspiration, and Ronnie J. Rombs accurately provides that for the reason that of the significance of salvation to Augustine. The examine is definitely written--complex, versatile, and sophisticated. there is not any related booklet within the field."--Eugene TeSelle, Professor Emeritus, Vanderbilt University

"Rombs makes an important contribution to Augustinian reports through his recreation to explain O'Connell's place and to qualify it, particularly through distinguishing the cosmogenic, ontological, and psychological/moral senses of the autumn of the soul."--Roland J. Teske, S.J., Marquette University

"[A]ny pupil of Augustine will locate this paintings illuminating for its research of O'Connell's legacy and for Rombs' personal sifting via a lot of the fourth- and fifth-century questions about the human soul after which displaying how Augustine got here to appreciate the character of the soul, its starting place, and its sanctification in Christ." -- David Meconi, S.J., Theological Studies

"Rombs' little ebook is split into elements. the 1st offers a useful carrier to scholars in its lucid and sympathetic account of the improvement of O'Connell's vital and rolling arguments that, whereas usually tortured, looked as if it would sweep every thing in entrance of them. For this on my own the publication is worthy having. yet then, within the moment part, Rombs is going a lot additional and joins the various critics of O'Connell who've argued for a much less uncompromisingly Plotinian realizing of Augustine's paintings. the following he strikes the scholarly argument ahead at the very least one notch." -- Colin Starnes, Philosophy in Review
