Abstract Augustine’s reflection about the link between the Old and New Testaments, as well as his definition of the reality of the justice of the Old Testament saints, took place in the context of two polemic backgrounds separate both on a chronological and theological scale. But only by putting into relation the Manichean and Pelagian controversies and the answers that the Bishop of Hippo gave to each of his opponents—he being in a way in-between their positions—can we understand the meaning he fi nally gave to the notion of “Testament” as well as the polemic use he made of it, particularly during his struggle against Pelagian naturalism.
