Chapter Summary

The fact of the matter is that the composition of the council had changed considerably from 1667 to 1678, and that this had an impact on the balance of power in relation to Pajon. The first example of someone who took time to decide that Pajon and his followers needed to be checked is no one less than Pierre Jurieu, whose reputation as an opponent of Pajon hardly needs to be invoked. Claude, and certainly Jurieu, appear never to have agreed with Pajon's views on the Spirit's operation in grace. The theme of concursus thus gained in importance over the course of the Pajonist controversies, and moved the discussion in the 1670s well beyond the question of whether or not his views constituted 'Pelagianism'. Furthermore, for both Jurieu and Claude, their changed perception of Pajon's doctrine seems to coincide with and to have been motivated by its extension to concursus.
