The soteriologies of nine major figures in the western Christian tradition are given, with an emphasis on their understandings of the will's role in justification. Included are Augustine, Peter Lombard, Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus, William of Ockham, Gregory of Rimini, Gabriel Biel, Johann von Staupitz, and Desiderius Erasmus.
