Although embattled, Melanchthon continued to defend evangelical free will until his death in 1560. In the twilight of his career, he wrote the expanded and revised Latin version of the Examination of Ordinands, he fought against the attacks of Nikolaus Gallus, he reported to the Elector August on his views on the will, and he penned the substantial Response to the Bavarian Articles. To the end, he held that the choice of faith in Christ had three causes: the Word, the Spirit, and the free human will. Although restrained and polite until 1560, Calvin now publicly denounced Melanchthon.
