Scholasticism and Orthodoxy in the Reformed Tradition: Definition and Method

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter represents a programmatic attempt at the identification of the problem of older scholarship in its reading of scholastic orthodoxy, from its tendency to ignore the fundamental identity of “scholasticism” as a method rather than a particular theological or philosophical consent, to its unwillingness to recognize that the Reformation itself, as the primary antecedent of Protestant orthodoxy, had the reestablishment of Christian “orthodoxy” as one of its fundamental goals. It concludes with a discussion of methodological issues and problems that need to be addressed for the full reappraisal of the phenomenon of Protestant orthodoxy.
