Theology of History and Apologetic Historiography in Heinrich Bullinger Truth in History
|Author: ||Garcia Archilla, Aurelio|
This exploration of a select number of Heinrich Bullinger's writings is one of the very few major studies in English on this influential Reformer. It demonstrates how Bullinger's theology informs his history-writing, and how he sees the latter in an humanistic context. The main thesis is that his history-writing is an expression of the Reformer's emphasis on justification by faith alone. It also constitutes the exploration of a new field in Reformation studies; the theology of history and the historical writings of the Reformers. This groundbreaking study will interest not only Reformation scholars but also historians in general.
