The most popular contemporary approach for reconciling libertarian freedom with divine foreknowledge is Molinism, but the view is fraught with problems and conflicts with classical theism. The other popular move is Open Theism, a simple rejection of divine foreknowledge. Neither position could be accepted by Anselm. Augustine and Boethius are both compatibilists, yet both lay important groundwork for Anselm's solution to the dilemma, especially through their meditations on time and eternity.

Keywords:   foreknowledge, time, eternity, Molinism, Open Theism, Augustine, Boethius
