A brief history of Forgiveness

A timeless concept, traceable to ancient civilizations, could be found in the Code of Hammurabi, Mesopotamia. One of the earliest known legal codes (circa 1754 BCE), included provisions for restitution and forgiveness as part of justice. Similarly, ancient Egyptian texts and hieroglyphs often depicted acts of forgiveness, showcasing its significance in these societies.

Many of the world’s major religions have played a significant role in shaping the concept of forgiveness. In Christianity, the teachings of Jesus Christ emphasised the importance of forgiving others as a central tenet of the faith. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” This principle has been instrumental in promoting forgiveness within Christian communities.
