In his Commentary on Romans of 1532, Melanchthon began to teach that the human will had limited freedom in both the temporal and spiritual realms. He further fleshed this out in the Loci communes of 1533–5, where he articulated an evangelical doctrine of free will—meaning that the will (in conjunction with the Word and Spirit) had some freedom in the choice of faith in Jesus, but that such a decision was then still tied to a doctrine of forensic justification by imputed righteousness.
