Gratia Adami, gratia Christi. La nature, la Loi et la grâce dans le premier augustinisme

Abstract : The question of the Law as related to nature and grace was one of the main concerns of those who, after Augustine’s death, defended him against the so-called “Semipelagians”, from Cassian to Faustus of Riez. An analysis of the probable filiations between the texts by Augustine and those of his defenders, Prosper of Aquitaine and Fulgentius of Ruspe, allows us to observe the terms and reasons for the emergence of Augustinianism, in the sense of a partly conscious and partly unconscious hardening of the original doctrine. Although the terms and developments are identical in appearance and deeply rooted in Augustine’s theology, their application to various objects and their integration into new contexts help to give a distorted representation of Augustine’s thought.
