Concupiscence – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

27 Jun

Concupiscence (from the Latin: con-, with + cupi, cupid – desire (usually sexual) + -escere – suffix denoting beginning of a process or state) is often defined as an ardent, usually sensual, longing or lust.[1] The concept is most commonly encountered in Christian theology, as the selfish human desire for an object, person, or experience.[2] For Christians, concupiscence refers to what they understand as the orientation, inclination or innate tendency of human beings to long for fleshly appetites, often associated with a desire to do things which are proscribed.
