Abstract

This study brings to a close analysis of the humanist thinking of the Portuguese authors João de Barros and Diogo de Sá in relation to the problem of justifying faith and its actions within the context of the Counter Reformation and the doctrine established by the Council of Trent. Distinctly to Luther, who defended the fatality of original sin and faith as an exclusive form of salvation, these thinkers highlight the importance of human collaboration for exercising free arbitration within the mystery of redemption, which has as its end not only the forgiveness of sins but also participation in the glory of immortal life through the mystery of resurrection.
