Anselm: Born of a Woman

“For it was appropriate that, just as death entered the human race through a man’s disobedience, so life should be restored through a man’s obedience; and that, just as the sin which was the cause of our damnation originated from a woman, similarly the originator of our justification and salvation should be born of a woman.”

-Anselm, Cur Deus Homo (Why God Became Man) Book 1.3
