Reformation and Scholasticism brings together papers presented at a colloquium in May 1997 at Utrecht University by thirteen highly respected European and American church historians, including Dr. Willem van Asselt, Dr. Cornelis Augustijn, Dr. Andreas J. Beck, Dr. Frits G. M. Boreyer, Dr. Luco J. van den Brom, Dr. Eef Dekker, Dr. Harm Goris, Dr. Bernt Loonstra, Dr. Richard A. Muller, Dr. Sebastian Rehnman, Dr. Willem van't Spijker, Dr. Carl Trueman and Dr. Antonie Vos. These essays focus on both the backward-looking relationship between the Reformation and Medieval Scholasticism and the forward-looking relationship between the Reformation and Protestant Scholasticism. Historical theologians have commonly held that no close connection exists between the two major intellectual movements of the sixteenth century--Reformation and Calvinist Scholasticism. Recent scholarship, however, has brought to light a number of theological misconceptions and historical inaccuracies leading some researchers to claim that Calvinist Scholasticism is not a betrayal, but a continuation of the heritage of the Reformation. This collection of recent scholarship provides important considerations for scholars, students, and historians of the Reformation and the sixteen and seventeenth centuries.Was this review helpful?
