Incurvatus in se is Latin for "curved inward on oneself." The concept was developed by Saint Augustine of Hippo and expanded by Martin Luther.[1] It refers to the mindset of focusing on oneself rather than focusing outwardly on God and the church community. People who are incurvatus in se consequently have no hesitation to sin.
