9783525550472: Philip Melanchthon: Theologian - in Classroom, Confession, and Controversy (Refo500 Academic Studies) (German Edition) (Refo500 Academic Studies (R5as))

These twelve essays by international scholars investigate Melanchthon's theological activities as teacher, confessor of the faith, and defender of his doctrine and ecclesiastical policies as they developed within the context of his service of society and church. In the past quarter century Melanchthon researchers have scrutinized older, mostly negative, interpretations of the Preceptor Germaniae. The editors present in this volume precisely focused appraisals of »Master Philip« in his role as theologian at the university and in the service of his own prince and others. By carefully placing his use of Aristotle, his understanding of the nature of training for pastoral ministry, his biblical exegesis in context, by analyzing four of his attempts to formulate Wittenberg teaching in public confession, by assessing how his own writings took on normative character for the church, and by tracing his thinking on the free will and the Lord s Supper in the midst of controversy, these authors offer carefully etched portraits of Melanchthon as Preceptor ecclesiae. This volume contributes to the expansion of our understanding of Melanchthon as key figure in the Wittenberg Reformation and the currents of controversy that have long surrounded the interpretation of his contributions.

Review:

"I have never learned so much about Melanchthon in such a short time as I have from Wengert's essays here included...I recommend most heartily, sincerely, and joyfully this volume to students of the Reformation, students of the history of the Church more broadly, students of the German Reformation, students of Melanchthon, and general readers looking for a volume from which they might learn a great deal about one of the Reformation's 'shadow' figures." --Jim West, Quartz Hill School of Theology
