Essay – Evaluate Augustinian theodicy

“The opening paragraph of St. Augustine’s Evil as Privation of Good contains the thesis of St. Augustine’s theodicy: ‘By this Trinity, supremely and equally and immutable good, were all things created. But they were not created supremely, equally, nor immutably good. Still, each single created thing is good, and taken as a whole they are very good, because together they constitute a universe of admirable beauty.’ St. Augustine is stating that God has created man and nature initially all to be good, even though there are different levels of goodness; nevertheless they were good to begin with.”
