Important Reformation Scholarship Aug 25, 2009
Tjernagel's edition of Dr. Robert Barnes' Reformation Essays is a welcome contribution to the field of English Reformation scholarship.
The selected essays cover essential topics significant to the 16th century reformers: Justification, The Church, The Office of the Keys, Free Will and Election, Holy Scripture, and Temporal and Religious Authority. All are carefully edited and rendered easily readable thanks to being recast in modern English.
The accompanying editorial notes on the published works of Robert Barnes also provide an invaluable resource to the student of the Reformation. These works include The Sentences (Sententiae ex Doctoribus Collectae, Quas Papistae Valde Impudenter Hodie Damnant), The Supplication ( A supplication made by Robert Barnes doctour in divinity unto the most excellent and redoubted prince king henrye the eight), and Lives of the Popes (Vitae Romanorum Pontificum).
The biographical notes offer a wealth of pertinent information concerning the life of the martyr Robert Barnes, who rightly deserves attention and study as one of the key players in bringing the Protestant Reformation to England.
