Life writing in Reformation Europe lives of reformers by friends, disciples and foes by Irena Dorota Backus ( )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This engaging study brings to light a largely neglected genre of Reformation literature, the Lives of various Reformers written after their death by contemporaries. Although far less well known than other types of writings, biography constitutes an important body of literature which sheds much light on numerous aspects of the Reformation. Utilising this important canon of reformation writing raises intriguing questions about the role of the individual and of Protestant hagiography, as well as the influence of classical and humanist traditions that stress the importance of the 'great' individua
Reformation readings of the Apocalypse Geneva, Zurich, and Wittenberg by Irena Dorota Backus ( )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this study, Irene Backus examines the fate of the Apocalypse at the hands of early Protestants in three centers of the Reformation: Geneva, Zurich, and Wittenberg. To do so, Backus systematically investigates sources and methods of the most important reformed and Lutheran commentaries of the Apocalypse from 1528-1584
The reception of the church fathers in the West : from the Carolingians to the Maurists ( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 1000-page English-language reference work has been produced with the collaboration of 23 scholars from Europe and North America and is intended as a guide to some of the most important developments in the history of the reception of the Church Fathers in the West, from the Carolingians to the Maurists. Particular emphasis is placed on the history of patristic scholarship which, unlike classical scholarship, has tended to be neglected by historians. However, the reception of patristic doctrines and ideas is also included and patristic scholarship is placed in its doctrinal and cultural context. Articles do not confine themselves to summarising what has been done on a particular topic, but also suggest new approaches and areas of research to be opened up. In order to make this volume useful to graduate students and scholars from non-theological disciplines, full relevant bibliographical information is provided. The volume addresses the following general questions: (1) what is meant by the "Fathers"; (2) the problems of patristic as opposed to Scriptural authority; (3) the types (and amount) of patristic material available and the problems of attribution and misattribution; (4) the uses made of the Fathers in constituting a theological doctrine and in response to a doctrinal difference; (5) the abuses made of the Fathers, i.e. overly tendentious or polemical uses; (6) the value of the Greek and Latin Fathers; (7) the use made of the Fathers in defining heresy and orthodoxy. The volume is intended to open up a field of studies and is the first-ever work of its kind. - Publisher
