Marius Victorinus was a plationist philosopher that converted to Christianity near the end of his life, supposedly his conversation had made a great impact on Augustine. However I have seen people claim he had taught Sola Fide! Do we have an expert in this forum that can find some Catholic commentary on his work? There are many Evangelicals that claimed he taught Sola Fide.
Here is one for example (starts on page 3) baptistcenter.net/journals/JBTM_11-1_Spring_2014.pdf
I was under the impression that Sola Fide was a “novelty” created by Martin Luther in the 16th century as an over-reaction
When Victorinus said “Thus any flesh whatsoever””Jews or those from the Gentiles"”is justified on the basis of faith, not works or observance of the Jewish Law."
Is the “works” he is referring to here works of the Jewish law and saying both works and observations of the Jewish law do not justify or is he splitting up general acts of kindness with Jewish ceremonial laws and saying they both not needed for justification?
