The Pelagian Controversy - In Our Time Melvyn Bragg
Pelagius was a British monk of the 4th Century who clashed with St Augustine over the doctrine of original sin. Pelagius didn't believe in it, Augustin did. But it was a key argument in the development of the theology of Christianity and was being argued about long afterwards. Predestination was another bone of contention - but Melvyn gets it all sorted. I suppose it was inevitable that he would.
