I'll probably pick it up Monday, I'll let you know when I'm done. :)
Who is eriugena?

I haven't read it, but if tradition holds true, expect some heracy.

Except that there is some thought in some minor circles that Pelagius, who was not a systematic theologian, was goaded into some of his more extreme views, and that his enemies took some of his thoughts out of context, and that some of his followers were actually more extreme than he, and attributed things to him that he never said.

All in all, this boils down to a misunderstood writer rather than a true heretic.

But still, tradition is tradition....
