Donne believed that one must have an understanding of both body and soul in order to understand the self and the divine. He felt that to have knowledge of one without the other resulted in incomplete understanding. Donne did not believe that the body was corrupt as a result of original sin, and he fully believed that sexual union leads to divine union
