It has long been recognized that John Calvin admired Martin Luther and that the Frenchman’s theology at various moments approached the teaching of Wittenberg. This relationship, however, was always mediated, particularly through the work of Philip Melanchthon. The literature on Calvin has not fully appreciated the manner in which his epistolary and literary references to Luther Author: Bruce Gordon.

While in Lutheran circles Melanchthon’s name may be more familiar, outside those circles Melanchthon’s name comes nowhere near the level of familiarity associated with Reformation stalwarts such as Luther, John Calvin, and Ulrich Zwingli.

Melanchthon’s relative obscurity in modern Christian thought is unfortunate. That whole period is sometimes called the “Age of Pericles.” Calvin considers Luther to be the Pericles of his age.

A Latin Bible published in at Wittenberg is designated as a common work of Melanchthon and mater: University of Heidelberg, University. The Reformation (alternatively named the Protestant Reformation or the European Reformation) was a movement within Western Christianity in 16th-century Europe that posed a religious and political challenge to the Catholic Church and in particular to papal gh the Reformation is usually considered to have started with the publication of the Ninety-five Theses by Martin Luther in.

In this book, Martin Luther and John Calvin received most of Godfrey's attention, but he also treats Philip Melanchthon, Peter Martyr Vermigli, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort.

Reformation Sketches: Insights into Luther, Calvin, and the Pages: Luther, Melanchthon & Calvin on Rom 5 & 13 4 follow carefully the authorial intention of the text—namely, what he sees to be the intentions of Paul—and is more apt to find and emphasize the doctrines of providence and election in these chapters.
