Book description

The European Reformation of the sixteenth century was one of the most formative periods in the history of Christian thought and remains one of the most fascinating events in Western history. The Cambridge Companion to Reformation Theology provides a comprehensive guide to the theology and theologians of the Reformation period. Each of the eighteen chapters is written by a leading authority in the field and provides an up-to-date account and analysis of the thought associated with a particular figure or movement. There are chapters focusing on lesser reformers such as Martin Bucer, and on the Catholic and Radical Reformations, as well as the major Protestant reformers. A detailed bibliography and comprehensive index allows comparison of the treatment of specific themes by different figures. This authoritative and accessible guide will appeal to students of history and literature as well as specialist theologians.


‘The excellent series of Companions to theologians and theological themes is enriched by the addition of this introduction to Reformation theology … Each chapter takes up a different figure, and is a helpful introduction and summary of their thought, supported by an up-to-the-minute bibliography pointing the reader to further study … high standards of scholarship and lucidity of expression are everywhere …’

‘… this will prove an indispensable reference for anyone who wants to progress beyond the basics of Reformation-era theology. Ordinands, in particular, will find it useful.’

'… a fine textbook for either an undergraduate or graduate course on the Reformation.'

'It is a delight therefore to read this introduction, not to the Reformation in general but to Reformation theology in particular. Like other volumes in the excellent Cambridge Companion series, it is written by a team of first-rate scholars in short pithy chapters which give a delicious taste of the subject. … The latest bibliography will aid those with whetted appetites who want to feast further. … These authors are fair, even sympathetic, in their attitude to the Protestant Reformers. …It is a refreshing and nuanced study, revealing the plurality of sixteenth century religion. One dominant impression left by this survey is the tremendous theological and doctrinal variety of the period.'
