From 1529 to 1531, Melanchthon wrote a commentary on Romans, attended the Diet of Augsburg, and produced the notable documents of the Augsburg Confession and its Apology. During this time, he continued to sharpen his formulation of the human will's temporal (or civil) freedom in combination with its spiritual bondage. In these years, Melanchthon almost never mentioned predestination.
