By the late middle ages, extreme Augustinianism had undergone considerable modification. In particular, theologians introduced the notion that human beings could “prepare” for salvation by provoking God’s favor on their own initiative. Luther and Calvin attacked late medieval modifications as unacceptable compromises with God’s sovereignty. To combat Protestant heresy, Luis de Molina of the Society of Jesus developed an elegant method of combining human free will with divine predestination based on God’s scientia media.
