(p.115) 7 Patristics and Public Debate
Reading Augustine in the Reformation

Oxford University Press

At the end of the sixteenth century parallel debates arose in both Catholic and Reformed areas of Europe on the role of divine grace and human free will. Augustine's works against the Pelagians played a prominent part in this discussion. The debates shaped the development of orthodox thought in each of the confessional settings. This chapter focuses on two of the key places for these debates, Catholic Leuven (the Baianist controversy) and Protestant Leiden (the Arminian controversy), to compare and assess the dynamics between public opinion, expressed in different media of communication (such as sermons, songs, pamphlets and plays) and academic scholarship (esp. the contributions by Michel Baius, Robert Bellarmine and Gerardus Joannes Vossius on heresiology and the history of the early Church).

Keywords:   Augustine of Hippo, media of communication, public opinion, Pelagianism, Arminianism, Baianism, Michel Baius, Robert Bellarmine, Gerardus Joannes Vossius, Leuven, Leiden
