Yet when Erasmus argues with Colet, he is prosecuting a general Christological point: He reminds Colet of Christ's two natures and corresponding two wills, divine and human, and how "the Church has stamped its authority so firmly on this theory of the two wills that anyone who thinks differently is branded a heretic." By referring to the theory of two wills, Erasmus uncovers the divide between early Church Fathers and later Scholastic theologians, which stems, in part, from the fact that the doctrine that Christ possessed only a single will, or monothelitism, was not formally condemned until the Sixth Council of Constantinople in 685.

Net soos Colet van Velden in Etienne Leroux se beroemde ontwikkelingsroman, Die eerste lewe van Colet, is die hoofpersoon hier 'n sensitiewe buitestaander, lewe ook 'n "dubbellewe" (72), tewens enigste kind en ook verskeurd tussen onversoenbaarhede: hier tussen hemel/ hel; die Duiwel en God; die goor werklikheid van 'n armoedige bestaan binne 'n disfunksionele gesin en die heerlike verbeeldingsbestaan verteenwoordig deur drome.
