Three Church Fathers and a Heretic, led by Andrew Lewis
Saturday 2 March, 10am-3pm, St Endellion Church
During the fourth and fifth centuries AD there was considerable development in Christian doctrine. A particularly influential theologian was Pelagius of Britain whose views on free will were heavily criticised by his contemporaries with the result that he was condemned by the Council of Carthage in 418. It has recently been argued that Pelagius was misunderstood and misrepresented. We will explore this issue against the background of three of Pelagius’s contemporaries recognised as Church Fathers, Ambrose, Augustine and Jerome.
