Title : Produced in Sin: Innocent III's rejectionof the Immaculate Conception [Like Bernard of Clairvaux, Innocent III venerated Mary without believing she was conceived free of Original Sin. Mary was the new Eve, sanctified in her mother's womb but still nourished by menstrual blood, an evidence of sin. Innocent believed Mary's being born in sin ensured Christ's being born with truly human flesh. She was born in sin but helped bring salvation, while Eve was born without sin but helped bring sin and death. Title note supplied by Feminae].
