Cajetan

[Lat.,=from Gaeta], 1469?–1534, Italian prelate, cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, b. Gaeta. His original name was Giacomo de Vio. He joined the Dominicans (c.1484), became general of this order (1508), and was made a cardinal (1517). He played a leading role at the Fifth Lateran Council as an advocate of reform. As papal legate in Germany in 1518 and 1519 he attempted to reconcile the differences of Martin Luther with the church. He strongly opposed the divorce of Henry VIII of England from his first wife Katharine of Aragón. Cajetan's political skills helped secure the elections of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and Pope Adrian VI. He translated parts of the Bible from Greek and Hebrew into Latin, and his commentaries are published with the Summa of St. Thomas Aquinas in the pontifical edition of that work.

When Cajetan writes that "in so far as [our works] proceed from the divine grace that precedes, accompanies, and completes them, [they] are meritorious and consequently of satisfactory value," he intends to reject--not to echo--the basic premise of the via moderna, and is in any case speaking of the temporal punishment for sins, not their forgiveness (25).
But the criticism should be laid more against Cajetan rather than Hochschild, for Cajetan does not addresses these ontological questions and seems even inconsistent, claiming sometimes that there is only one imperfect concept suggested by the two perfect concepts, and at other times that there is more than one imperfect concept.
