Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta will vote on reversing condemnation of Pelagius

(HT: Rod Dreher). Over 1500 years in the making, Pelagius is making an ecclesiastical comeback. The story begins:

The [Episcopal] Diocese of Atlanta has been asked to rehabilitate Pelagius.

Delegates to the diocesan convention will be asked to reverse the condemnation of the Council of Carthage upon Pelagius, and to explore whether the Fifth century heretic may inform the theology of the Episcopal Church.

Resolution R11-7 before the convention states in part:

“Whereas the historical record of Pelagius’s contribution to our theological tradition is shrouded in the political ambition of his theological antagonists who sought to discredit what they felt was a threat to the empire, and their ecclesiastical dominance, and whereas an understanding of his life and writings might bring more to bear on his good standing in our tradition;”

You can read the whole thing here. (But what of his half-brother, semi-Pelagius?) Perhaps if Pelagius wins the November 4 vote, he can do a remake of the LL Cool J video:
