How did people perceive work during the Middle Ages? Was is simply the just punishment for a sinful humanity, or could an individual gain salvation through hard labor? In other words: Was eternal life completely dependent on God and his mercy or could man contribute through his own actions? This study on medieval work ethics discusses these and other philosophical and theological questions by looking at selected sources from Augustine to Thomas Aquinas. German text.
