Review:

The hundred years after Augustine of Hippo's death were crucial for the doctrine of grace in the Western church. Alternating waves of enthusiasm for Augustine's teaching and objections to its more extreme positions gradually began to shape an interpretation of Augustine that was to become Augustinianism. Rebecca Weaver carefully traces the course of this controversy from the last years of Augustine's life to the Council of Orange in 529. John Cassiam, Prosper of Aquitaine, Faustus of Riez, Fulgentius of Ruspe, and Caesarius of Arles are among the most important theologians whose work she analyzes. "The relationship between divine grace and human agency", Weaver writes, "has been the source of recurrent dispute throughout the history of the Western church. " Divine Grace and Human Agency: A Study of the Semi-Pelagian Controversy offers a balanced guide to the important roots of that dispute, and shows how the Semi-Pelagians' insistence on human freedom balanced Augustine's insistence on sovereign, predestinating grace. -- Midwest Book Review

Book Description Catholic Univ of Amer Pr January 1996, 1996. Paper Back. Condition: New. Semi-Pelagianism was an attempt among theologians in the fourth and fifth centuries to mediate between doctrines of the sovereignty of grace and predestination in Augustine and the freedom of the will in Pelagius. While not denying the necessity of grace for salvation, theologians like John Cassian, influenced by eastern monasticism, maintained that the first steps in the life of faith were taken by the human will and that grace intervened subsequently. Rebecca Weaver exhaustively examines the social context of monasticism versus a congregational, lay emphasis as a means to understand this movement. Rejected by the Council of Orange in 529, she argues that Semi-Pelagianism's influence continued to be profound up through the controversies with Molinists and Jansenists in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
