Free will and the human act in seventeenth century Eastern Orthodox theology

Heith-Stade, David LU (2011) In Studia Theologica - Nordic Journal of Theology 65(2). p.134-145
Abstract
This article analyses the doctrine of free will (autexousion) in the confessions of St. Peter Mogila and Dositheos II Notaras of Jerusalem. Free will is a central concept in Eastern Christian anthropology and these two monuments of theology represent how the understanding of the concept of free will developed in Eastern Orthodox theology in the context of the confrontation with Western theologies in the seventeenth century.
