Bucer, Ephesians and Biblical Humanism: The Exegete as Theologian (Studies in Early Modern Religious Tradition, Culture and Society)

This booklet describes Martin Bucer (1491-1551) as a instructor of theology, concentrating on his time as Regius Professor of Divinity on the college of Cambridge among 1549 and 1551. The booklet is based on his 1550 Cambridge lectures on Ephesians, and investigates them of their historic context, exploring what kind of a theologian Bucer used to be. The lectures are tested to determine how they signify Bucer’s approach to educating and “doing” theology, and make clear the connection among biblical exegesis and theological formula as he understood it. Divided into interconnected elements, the ebook first units the ancient context for the lectures, together with a wide cartoon of scholastic strategy in theology and the biblical humanist critique of that technique. It then heavily examines Bucer’s perform within the Cambridge lectures, to teach the level to which he was once a theologian of the biblical humanist institution, stimulated by means of the tactic Erasmus set forth within the Ratio Verae Theologiae during which precise theology starts, ends, and is better “done” as an workout within the exegesis of the note of God.
