  1. Coming at this from the Eastern Orthodox perspective, there is a good book by Fr Seraphim (Rose) called The Place of Blessed Augustine in the Orthodox Church which, while being basically an argument that St Augustine should be honoured by Orthodox, also states clearly his errors on the issue of free will and shows how St John Cassian is a faithful representative of the Orthodox teaching on this subject.

    Columba Stewart’s Cassian the Monk also argues against the convention of calling him ‘Semi-Pelagian’ and suggests that we try to understand St Cassian’s teachings against the background of Eastern Christianity rather than within the context of the Pelagian controversy or through the criticisms of the hyper-Augustinian Prosper of Aquitaine.

  2. Not sure if you’re still interested in this, but I just did a paper on Augustine, Pelagius, and Cassian on Original Sin. One book helpful for me on Cassian was “Divine Grace and Human Agency: A Study of the Semi-Pelagian Controversy.”

  3. Jacob, I recently purchased the book but have not read it yet. What were your thoughts over all on it?
