To combat these modern day Pelagians, Luther was greatly aided by the champion of orthodoxy against the first Pelagians.

Further, the Finnish Lutheran, Uura Saarnivaara, has recently come out with a Augustine/Luther survey.Simply because Luther quotes Augustine more then any other church father combined (which he does) also does not prove anything.Luther could have quoted Augustine frequently to promote his own agenda since Augustine was respected.From a theological perspective we could survey Augustine and Luther’s theology and see if they are similar, but that would not answer the question of influence.Two people can be in agreement, but not influenced by one another.

The question is difficult to answer from a historical perspective because more concrete evidence must be documented to show that Luther was influenced by Augustine.
