Abstract: At the occasion of the retirement of Prof. O. Wermelinger (Fribourg, Switzerland), a study day on Pelagianism has been organized. In this paper, presented at this study day, an attempt to offer a systematic survey of Augustine's appeal to tradition the second Pelagian controversy is offered. Augustine claimed that his own positions on God, human nature, fall, redemption, only to mention a few, were backed by tradition. This contribution not only exhaustively presents Augustine's limited familiarity with and use of both the Latin and Greek (especially with regard to the letter the familiarity is rachter limited if not marginal) tradition, but also evaluates the pro's and contra's of Augustine's claims.
