Ratings:
Length: 364 pages

Summary

Long overshadowed by Luther and Calvin, Philipp Melanchthon (1497–1560) is nevertheless one of the most important figures in the Protestant Reformation. Reformer, humanist, theologian, philosopher, ecumenist, and teacher of pastors—Melanchthon had a profound effect on the sweep of Western church history. This book gives the most detailed English-language biographical treatment of Melanchthon to date, moving from his historical context and family of origin, through his childhood, education, and early career at Wittenberg during the dramatic events at the dawn of the Reformation (1497–1524).
