Item description for Fountainhead of Federalism: Heinrich Bullinger and the Covenantal Tradition by Charles S. McCoy, J. Wayne Baker & Heinrich Bullinger...
Overview This study, which includes a valuable new English translation of Heinrich Bullinger's treatise A Brief Exposition of the One and Eternal Testament or Covenant of God, outlines the main facets of federalism and argues that ideas of religious covenant among Protestant reformers influenced federalism, which is reflected in the Constitution of the United States. Bullinger's treatment is the first work to organize the understanding of God, creation, humanity, and human history around the idea of covenant.
"Fountainhead of Federalism" offers a new translation of Heinrich Bullinger's presentation of his understanding of the covenant. Charles McCoy also discusses Bullinger's work as it relates to the federal tradition.
