Item description for Reformation and Scholasticism: An Ecumenical Enterprise (Texts and Studies in Reformation and Post-Reformation Thought) by Willem VanAsselt...
Overview 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. 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. 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. This collection of recent scholarship provides important considerations for scholars, students, and historians of the Reformation and the sixteen and seventeenth centuries.
