Chapter Summary

This chapter answers two questions. The first question is: What was the character of Arminius's most intensive discussion of Augustine's views, which is found in the Dissertatio de vero et genuino sensu capitis VII ad Romanos? Why may Arminius have used Augustine as he did in this writing? The second question: Is it possible, on the basis of Arminius's other writings, to identify a specific "Arminian" use of the Augustinian corpus by Arminius? In answering these questions the main focus of the chapter is on Arminius's Opera theologica.The chapter includes the text of most of Arminius's work and it provides a representative picture of Arminius's use of Augustine's theology. In the Disputationes publicae that are printed in the Opera theologica, Augustine is mentioned in Arminius's discussions 'On the authority and certitude of Holy Scripture,' 'On the first sin of man,' 'On human free choice and its powers,' and 'On idolatry'.

Keywords: Augustine; Disputationes publicae; Jacobus Arminius; Opera theologica
