Part of the Studies in the History of Philosophy of Mind book series (SHPM, volume 15)

Abstract

This paper focuses on one or two pericopes taken from the Commentaries on the Epistles of Paul, by the famous Douai theologian Guilielmus Estius. In his works Estius takes a ‘rigorist’, Augustinian view on sexuality, which he defends against the ‘laxism’ of, amongst others, the Jesuits.
