The Augustinian Legacy
This chapter reviews Augustine's position on free will. The argument is made that Augustine was a compatibilist in his early work, De libero arbitrio, as well as in the later anti-Pelagian works, and he was a compatibilist about the condition of mankind before as well as after the fall of Adam and Eve. His compatibilism leaves him open to charge that God is ultimately the cause of sin.
