This ebook 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 e-book is headquartered 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 symbolize 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 booklet first units the old context for the lectures, together with a huge cartoon of scholastic approach in theology and the biblical humanist critique of that process. It then heavily examines Bucer’s perform within the Cambridge lectures, to teach the level to which he used to be a theologian of the biblical humanist university, inspired through the tactic Erasmus set forth within the Ratio Verae Theologiae during which precise theology starts off, ends, and is healthier “done” as an workout within the exegesis of the notice of God.
