The Fall of Man

„For man, by the fall, lost at once his state of innocence, and his empire over creation, both of which can be partially recovered even in this life, the first by religion and faith, the second by the arts and sciences.“ (p. 292f.) #FrancisBacon #FallofMan #religion #faith #art #science
