AUGUSTINUS

Definition

The treatise of Cornelius Jansenius (d. 1638), published after his death, in which were expounded the main principles of Jansenism. Based on St. Augustine's anti-Pelagian works, Augustinus denied the existence of a supernatural order and the resistibility of grace. It was condemned as heretical by Pope Innocent X in five propositions.
