Excerpt


In 1539 Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto, Bishop of Carpentras, France, sent a letter to the magistrates and citizens of Geneva asking them to return to the Catholic faith. A few months later, John Calvin replied to Sadoleto, defending the Protestant reforms. Both letters are lucid and eloquent statements of their espective positions. Their dialog is polemical, but their tone is elevated and their arguments substantial. The letters of Calvin and Sadoleto comprise one of the most interesting exchanges of Catholic-Protestant views of the Reformation era. Together, they form an excellent introduction to the great religious controversy of the sixteenth century.

Excerpt


The boldness with which Luther attacked the abuses and the authority of the Church of Rome in the 16th century attracted attention throughout Christendom in general and more specifically Spain. As Luther's writings, along with the earlier ones of Erasmus, gained a foothold with a Spanish people hungry for the truth, the forces of the church became anxious to suppress what they dreaded as an immediate danger. Thomas M'Cries's scholarly 1829 examination of the rise and persecution of 16th century Spanish Protestantism was intended by the author as a contribution to the history of that memorable revolution that affected all nations of Europe and indeed the Western World. He draws from, among other sources, the first hand accounts by earlier authorities such as Reynaldo Gonzalez de Montes and Cypriano de Valera, and furnishes the work with interesting details rescued from literary obscurity. His most interesting source is that of Juan Antonio Liorente, Secretary to the Inquisition at Madrid, which brings verification of accounts thought to be trained by preduice. In the end, M'Crie makes a case for a Spain free of the religious errors and coruptions that ultimately dried up the resources and poisoned the fountains of a great empire.

Excerpt


On the battlefield at Kappel, a Swiss hero died. He was not a warrior but a minister. His heroism was not displayed in military valor but in preaching the gospel. He demonstrated his courage not so much in facing pikes, spears, and swords as in declaring the whole counsel of God, even when kings and priests opposed him. This hero was Ulrich Zwingli. In sixteenth century Switzerland, Zwingli sought to reform the church according to the pure precepts of the Word of God. Yet in those violent times, even a spiritual reformation could encounter very earthly opposition. Plots and counterplots, rioting mobs, and the threat of executioner's sword confronted the reformer of Zurich and his supporters. The Reformation did not advance without the shedding of blood. Through it all, Zwingli sought to be a faithful shepherd to his flock, knowing that his loyalty must ultimately lie not with kings or princes but with "that great shepherd of the sheep," the Lord Jesus Christ.

Excerpt


The reformation of the sixteenth century, whick gave birth to Protestantism, was based on Scripture. It gave back to the world the Bible. It taught the Scriptures; it exposed the errors and corruptions of Rome by the use of the sword of the Spirit. It applied the prophecies, and accepted their practical guidance. Such Reformation work requires to be done afresh. We have suffered prophetic antipapal truth to be too much forgotten. This generation is dangerously latitudinarian--indifferent to truth and error on points on which Scripture is tremendously decided and absolutely clear. The duty of diffusing information on the true character and history of "Romanism and the Reformation" is one which presses on God's faithful people in these days. The apathy of many as to the present crisis only increases the danger, and intensifies the call for clear and cogent teaching suited to counteract the Romeward tendencies of these times.

Excerpt


This set, originally an 8 volume work, is reprinted in these 4 volumes. The renovation of the individual, of the church, and of the human race, is the theme. If the Holy Ghost kindles the lamp of truth in man, it is (according to Calvin) to the end that the entire man should be transformed. In the Kingdom of Christ, he says, it is only the new man that flourishes and has any vigor, and whom we ought to take into account. This renovation is, at the same time, an enfranchisement; and we might assign, as a motto to the reformation accomplished by Calvin, as well as to apostolical Chiristianity itself, these words of Jesus Christ: The truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)

Excerpt


This volume brings together a comprehensive picture of the leaders of the Reformation who arose in every part of Europe. Here were heroes of the cross, who were willing to suffer persecution and death in order that the faith they held dear might be kindled in a thousand other lives. Their basic faith has come down to modern Protestantism from the church of the apostles. The faith and freedom bequeathed to us must be preserved in our day. We must know of the sacrifices and aims, the beliefs and hopes of the Reformation leaders who blazed the way out of the darkness of the Middle Ages. The authors of this volume have made a sincere endeavor to bring the men of Protestantism, in the hearts of this generation.

Excerpt


Calvinism was the most dynamic and disruptive religious force of the later sixteenth century. Its emergence on the international scene shattered the precarious equilibrium established during the Reformation, and precipitated three generations of religious warfare. This collection of original essays, newly available in paperback, looks at the impact of Calvin's writings, Calvinism in higher education, Calvinist discipline and apocalyptic thought, and the shadowy affinity of merchants and scholars who formed a critical part of the 'Calvinist International'.

Excerpt


Martin Greschat's seminal work is the first biography of the important Protestant reformer to be written in seventy years. Now translated into English, this work - "the most comprehensive account of Bucer's place within the context of the history of the Reformation" (The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Reformation)- transcends normal biographies by providing much of interest in relation to the social and political context of the sixteenth century. Lucid in style and mature in scholarship, Greschat's Martin Bucer is a splendid contribution to Reformation studies.
