This is one of Calvin’s more significant works, for a variety of reasons. It contains Calvin’s fullest exposition of sin and grace and how these relate to the human will. He uses a range of language (including scholastic terminology) wider than that found elsewhere in his writings. Also this work is, after the Institutio, the most significant for Calvin’s use of the Fathers, with sustained exposition of Augustine in particular. The notes not only trace Calvin’s sources in precise detail but also point to his use elsewhere of the same texts. There are full and detailed cross references to Pighius’s De libero hominis arbitrio (1542), to which Calvin was responding, and to the 1539 edition of the Institutio, which Pighius was attacking. Pighius’s work has never been reprinted and is relatively rare so the relevant portion is reproduced by facsimile in this volume. This, together with the detailed notes, means that the reader can trace the course of the debate from the 1539 Institutio to Pighius’s work to Calvin’s response — and sometimes beyond. There is also full documentation of Calvin’s use of classical and proverbial material.
Plusieurs raisons font de ce texte l’une des œuvres les plus importantes de Calvin. Il contient son exposé le plus complet du péché et de la grâce et de leur rapport à la volonté humaine. Calvin se sert d’un vocabulaire beaucoup plus riche que dans ses autres écrits et fait référence aux Pères de l’Eglise, en particulier à St Augustin, presque autant que dans l’Institutio. Les renvois au De libero hominis arbitrio (1452) de Pighius, auquel Calvin réagissait, et à l’édition de l’Institution de 1539, qu’attaquait Pighius, sont donnés en note et les passages de l’œuvre de Pighius en rapport avec le texte de Calvin reproduits en fac-similé.
