Chapter Summary

The aim of this chapter is to throw some light on possible late-medieval backgrounds of Erasmus' well-known propositions on the relationship between God's grace and human free will in his De libero arbitrio diatribe sive collatio. Etienne Tem-pier, the Bishop of Paris, condemned some theses in 1270 and again in 1277. For the discussions about the doctrine of grace, one of the most important was thesis 21: &t;Nothing happens by contingency, but everything by necessity&t;. Followers of Augustine's doctrine of grace had to prove that their claim of dependency on God's grace avoided such philosophical determinism. Here we find a discussion of man's inability &t;to discern, to wish, or to accomplish&t; any morally good act without God's help.
