I found this quote to be disturbing both in the nature of its content and in the mere fact that a man is jointly capable of wonderful reflection on the nature of God and terrible bigotry towards women. Perhaps there is a lesson in this for those of us who dare to interpret the scriptures and produce from this interpretation that potent drug called theology.
I,1,2 God’s judgment on this sex[that is women] lives on in our age; the guilt necessarily lives on as well. You are the Devil’s gateway; you are the unsealer of that tree; you are the first foresaker of the divine law; you are the one who persuaded him whom the Devil was not brave enough to approach; you so lightly crushed the image of God, the man Adam; because of your punishment, that is, death, even the Son of God had to die. And you think to adorn yourself beyond your “tunics of skins”? (CSEL 70.59 as cited in Clark Women in the Early Church 39)
