    Augustine's Lie

    The story of the Briton who defended human free will against the idea of original sin as the Roman empire collapsed.

    Tried for heresy three times and acquitted three times, Pelagius was then condemned as a result of corruption. This is the story of the lie that saw him condemned, and the mix of religion and politics as the world fell apart that installed original sin as orthodoxy in the west.
