Heidelberg Disputation

(Heidelberg Meeting). Discussion, arranged by J. v. Staupitz,* at a meeting of the Gen. Chap. of the Augustinian Order held at Heidelberg, Ger., April 1518. Opponents of M. Luther* hoped to silence him at this meeting. But Staupitz tried to give Luther's position a fair hearing. In his theses Luther opposed the theologia gloriae of W of Ockham* with his own theologia* crucis, the philos. of Aristotle* with the theol. of Paul.
