The Myth of Pelagianism - An Interview w/ Dr Ali Bonner
What is Pelagianism? Where did it come from? Did Pelagius believe in "Pelagianism"? Why did Augustine condemn Pelagius and Pelagianism? Warren McGrew of Idol Killer sits down with Dr Ali Bonner to discuss these questions and more in light of recent scholarship.
After reading Classics at Oxford, Alice Bonner studied Anglo Saxon, Norse, and Celtic in Cambridge, where she gained a BA (Aff.) and MPhil, followed by a PhD on the manuscript transmission of Pelagius' Letter to Demetrias. Subsequently she was a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford, before being appointed to the Lectureship in Celtic History at Cambridge. Her research focuses on Pelagius and Faustus of Riez, two British authors of the fifth century who wrote in Latin, and she has published on St Patrick and Pelagius. She currently teaches on Celtic history, that is, the history of the Brittonic speaking peoples and the Gaelic speaking peoples from AD 380 to 1170
