In the first half of the sixteenth century, between the Fifth Lateran Council and the Council of Trent, thinkers focused on the concept of free will in relation to natural necessity and that of divine actions. The debate culminated in the Erasmus-Luther dispute. In Pomponazzi’s doctrine, virtue can be chosen freely and is its own reward: therein lies the foundation of moral philosophy as well as the necessary condition for a constructively rationalistic theology of salvation.
