Summary "Pelagius has had a very poor press over the centuries and has been a frequent victim of misunderstanding and misinterpretation. This book re-examines the evidence for the Pelagian controversy and its aftermath and suggests that the issues raised by it are as important today as they were in the fifth century." --from back cover
