'Sin' today is more of an issue than ever. Lilo Wanders TV-show 'Liebe Su?nde' was a hit for years, 'TV-Su?nde' is the name of a TV show and respective keywords lead to an abundant output on the web. Even in the cultural scene 'Sin' is an ever-present topic, as seen in plays like 'Bash: Latter-Day Plays', 'Your Friends and Neighbors', 'Helter Skelter/Land of the Dead' by American playwright Neil La-Bute. 'Peccatum Mundi' deals with whether the word sin can be understood without referring to religion and analyses the contemporary interest in Neil La-Bute's work and films such as 'Seven'. Choirs depict the issue by an ongoing interplay between individual experience and historical "development" (concerning matters such as the Fall of Man and conscience, moral bondage and pleasurable misdemeanour, juvenile provocation and secularisation, community and guilt).
