The harvest of medieval theology : Gabriel Biel and late medieval nominalism by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

81 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oberman explains the theology and philosophy of late medieval nominalism through a detailed analysis of the writings of Gabriel Biel, the famous German disciple of William Ockham. The book discusses all the themes of Biel's thought: the dialectic of the two powers of God, grace, predestination, justification, Christology, Mariology, eucharist, and mysticism. Because Biel is believed to have had a profound influence on the young Martin Luther, Oberman's book is as important for Reformation scholars as it is for medievalists."--Jacket
Forerunners of the Reformation : the shape of late medieval thought by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

21 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oberman's groundbreaking Reader transfers discussion of late medieval Christian thought from the private studies of the specialists to more general use and understanding, and explains the significance of the ideas of the time. Although this 'late medieval reader' does not exhaust the riches of the period between the High Middle Ages and the Reformation era, it introduces the reader to aspects of such major themes as conciliarism, curialism, mysticism, scholasticism, the spiritualityu of the Devotio Moderna, and the impact of Renaissance humanism." - back cover

True Christianity by Johann Arndt( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Schweitzer has called Johann Arndt the the prophet of interior Protestantism. This great German Lutheran mystic and follower of Melanchthon aroused Calvinist hostility by his spirituality of Christ in the heart of man. He was deposed as pastor of Bedeborn for refusing More ... to abide by the orders of his Calvinist duke. Inspired by Bernard of Clairvaux, Angela of Foligno, John Tauler and Thomas a Kempis, he later came to be venerated by the Pietists. True Christianity is his principal mystical work and one of the most important in the Protestant tradition. He published the first book of this work, which is presented here, in 1605. He added three other books at a later date and two more were appended posthumously. Books two to six are represented in this volume by selected excerpts
The dawn of the Reformation : essays in late medieval and early Reformation thought by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

23 editions published between 1981 and 1992 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening chapters consider late medieval thought and the emergence of the young Luther at the center of the Reformation movement. There follows a study of the impact upon Luther of the philological, spiritual, and philosophical traditions of sixteenth-century Europe. These traditions are fully examined in order to discern what Luther and his followers silently ignored or rejected, thus delineating what is new and original in early Reformation thought. The remaining chapters move from Luther to the wider world of events marking the Reformation era: the Peasant War, the Copernican Revolution, the beginning of the Counter-Reformation, and the reforms initiated by the Council of Trent. - Cover

The two Reformations : the journey from the last days to the new world by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

16 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this last collection of his vital, controversial, and accessible writings, Heiko A. Oberman seeks to liberate and broaden our understanding of the European Reformation, from its origins in medieval philosophy and theology through the Puritan settlers who brought Calvin's vision to the New World. Ranging over many topics, Oberman finds fascinating connections between aspects of the Reformation and twentieth century history and thought - most notably the connection to Nazism and the Holocaust. He revisits his earlier work on the history of anti-Semitism, rejects the notion of an unbroken line from Luther to Hitler to the Holocaust, and offers a new perspective on the Christian legacy of anti-Semitism and its murderous result in the twentieth century." "Oberman demonstrates how the simplifications and rigidities of modern historiography have obscured the existential spirits of such great figures as Luther and Calvin. He explores the debt of both Luther and Calvin to medieval religious thought and the impact of diverse features of "the long fifteenth century"--Including the Black Death, nominalism, humanism, and the Conciliar Movement - on the Reformation. Drawing on a long and illustrious career of research, close study of primary sources, and deep reflection, Oberman shows how the study of the traditions and thinking of the Reformation illuminates not only a part of history but also the modern world and our assumptions about it."--Jacket

The impact of the Reformation : essays by Heiko Augustinus Oberman( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays from a distinguished scholar of medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation history examines one of the most fascinating and turbulent periods of human history from the perspective of the social history of ideas. Taking advantage of the windows offered by late medieval scholastic thought, the Modern Devotion, Johann von Staupitz, Martin Luther, Marian piety, and the escalation of anti-Semitism, Heiko A. Oberman illumines the social and intellectual context for the reform of church and society in the sixteenth century. These programmatic essays not only provide analyses of Reformation events but also contribute to the contemporary search for new methods and models that better capture the meaning of that period. Recognizing the distance between intellectual and social historians of the Reformation, Oberman seeks to bridge the gap by pursuing an innovative path. The impact of the Reformation is traced through everyday life as well as through individual programs for change
