Thomas Aquinas and the doctrine of election
Can anyone explain me what the position of Aquinas on election ?
Was he a (semi) palagian or was he in line with Augustine ?
Did he view election from the perspective of Gods free sovereinty or did he based election on the fact that God would know how would have faith in him ?

It is clear that he does not pray, who, far from uplifting himself to God, requires that God shall lower Himself to him, and who resorts to prayer not to stir the man in us to will what God wills, but only to persuade God to will what the man in us wills."-ST. THOMAS AQUINAS (1225–1274)
