A Work on the Proceedings of Pelagius.: Chapter 13
Chapter 13 [V.]—The Fifth Item of the Accusation; And Pelagius Answer.
After the judges had accorded their approbation to this answer of Pelagius, another passage which he had written in his book was read aloud: “The kingdom of heaven was promised even in the Old Testament.” Upon this, Pelagius remarked in vindication: “This can be proved by the Scriptures: but heretics, in order to disparage the Old Testament, deny this. I, however, simply followed the authority of the Scriptures when I said this; for in the prophet Daniel it is written: The saints shall receive the kingdom of the Most. High.” 1642 After they had heard this answer, the synod said: “Neither is this opposed to the Churchs faith.”
Dan. vii. 18.
