Origional sin - question
Did it start with st Augustine ? It is a concept - even when I was a believer- I doubted. What is the history behind it ?

From a quick and cursory glance, it would seem that Augustine did have something to do with it...

Wikipedia Wrote:The concept of original sin was first alluded to in the 2nd century by Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons in his controversy with certain dualist Gnostics. Other church fathers such as Augustine also developed the doctrine.[2]
