Lecture Description

One of the most important of the disputes of Augustin's day was the so-called Pelagian Controversy, named for Pelagius, a British monk who challenged Augustin's strong view of grace in the work of salvation. It was in the context of this dispute the Augustin clarified his deep commitment to God's sovereignty in the salvation of humankind, a perspective that became highly important at the time of the Reformation. This lecture finishes a discussion of the views of Pelagius, and begins a summary of Augustin's response.
