CONGREGATIO DE AUXILIIS
A commission to settle the theological controversy on grace and free will, established by Pope Clement VIII and continued by Pope Paul V. The Dominicans and Jesuits were parties to the dispute. After nine years of ineffective discussion Pope Paul V in 1607 dissolved the commission and reserved the decision to the Holy See. A decision has never been promulgated.
