Go Chalcedon

Pope Leo I the Great. At the Council of Chalcedon, after his legates read his Tome on the two natures of Christ, the attendees declared, "Peter has spoken through Leo."

Actually I'm embarrassed I'm 50% Apollonarian. I'll have to study up. I do not apologize for being semi-Pelagian.

Primo, you never cease to amaze me.

well.. pelagius, though wrong in his basic assumptions about the original sin, found some big truths like the chance of attaining salvation not only thru the Gospel and he stressed the human capability of getting virtuous... i am sincerely catholic but i think a breeze of pelagianism would have a ggod effect on nowadays church

Agostino, I certainly agree with you. From what I understand, the orthodox Catholic view, for all its indebitedness to St Augustine, never completely accepted his more radical statements on determinism (Calvin, on the other hand...). Later medieval theology (i.e., Gabriel Biel) developed a very fascinating and complex way of explaining the relationship between human effort and divine grace.
