Where did the evil in the world originate? Was it caused, or at least permitted, by God? Can evil be integrated into the divine world order? These are the central questions of the theodicy to which the philosopher from Cassiciacum seeks an answer in De ordine. Augustine offers remarkable approaches to a solution. In this work, Jorg Trelenberg provides an analysis of the Augustinian concept, an analysis which is precise in its philological aspects and provides a comprehensive theological point of view. He focuses on the literary and philosophical traditions on which Augustine relies and which he makes apparent in his dialogue in multiple reminiscences.
