Lutheran Miscellany


“Ironically, the ecclesiological component that is fundamental to Roman Catholic rejection of Luther in the sixteenth century will be essential for understanding Catholic magisterial appreciation of Luther in the twentieth century when its understanding of the church would become more explicitly biblical.”

Gregory Sobolewski in his Martin Luther. Roman Catholic Prophet

Epistolarvm Liber, Continens praeclara multa cvm Ecclesiastica Tvm Politica & Historica cognitione dignissima, Antehac nunquam Editus. Lugduni Batavorum, 1647. 8vo, [XXIV], 517pp. 100 x 165 x 35mm.

Philipp Melanchthon (1497-1560) was a German reformer under the influence of Martin Luther. More than most 16th century reformers, he was a humanist who valued a depth of learning in many fields. In his scripture commentaries he ignored the medieval “four senses” of Scripture and brought historical and critical insights to the study of Scripture. Throughout his life he remained pivotal in Reformation affairs and is the man chiefly responsible for the Augsburg Confession. This collection of his letters touches on his broad breadth of diverse subject matters. OCLC: 311607305
