They discuss whether the concept of forgiveness, as it is often understood today, was absent, or at all events more restricted in scope than has been commonly supposed, and what related ideas (such as clemency or reconciliation) may have taken the place of forgiveness. An introductory chapter reviews the conceptual territory of forgiveness and illuminates the potential breadth of the idea, enumerating the important questions a theory of the subject should explore.

The following chapters examine forgiveness in the contexts of classical Greece and Rome- the Hebrew Bible, the Talmud, and Moses Maimonides- and the New Testament, the Church Fathers, and Thomas Aquinas.
