In 1517, however, he secured the writings of Augustine, studied them thoroughly and found himself suddenly forced to break definitively with scholastic theology in support of Luther. In De natura, lege et gratia, a lecture/commentary on Augustine’s De spiritu et litera (1517–1518), Karlstadt established the foundations of his personal theological orientation, in that he applied late medieval Augustinian spiritualism—especially as it was mediated through Dominican mysticism10—to solving the reform problems of his day.
