Synopsis
This study reviews penance within the context of the spirituality of 4th-and 5th-century Italy. By relating the attitudes toward penance and pardon in those days to the changing social position of the Christian community, this text reveals that a new understanding of penance developed as an integral part of the development of the role of the Church in leading sinners to healing and holiness.
