Pious Polygenism and Original Sin

Lembke, Martin LU (2013) In Faith and Philosophy 30(4). p.434-438
Abstract
In this very short paper, I argue that it is possible to harmonize the doctrine of original sin, as western Christendom has traditionally understood it, with a polygenist account of human ancestry. To this end, particular attention is paid to the encyclical Humani Generis (1950), in which Pope Pius XII strongly cautions against polygenist ideas.
