The correspondence of Wolfgang Capito by Wolfgang Capito( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2020 in English and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wolfgang Capito (1478-1541) was one of the most important figures of the Reformation, a leading churchman who turned from Catholic to Protestant. A professor of theology and advisor to the Archbishop of Mainz, he moved to Strasbourg and worked for two decades toward the reformation of the city, which became, after Wittenberg, the most active centre of the Reformation movement. This volume--the first of three--is a fully annotated translation of Capito’s existing correspondence, covering the years 1507-1523. The letters reveal his dialogue with leading humanists and reformers, such as Erasmus and Luther (with whom Capito had a contentious relationship), and reflect the cultural and political milieu of the time. They also offer significant insights into the progress of the Reformation. Erika Rummel’s head- and footnotes provide historical context by identifying classical and biblical quotations as well as persons and places. The volume will aid historians of the Reformation by elucidating as yet imperfectly understood aspects of Capito’s thought, such as his efforts to promote concord between the reformers, his stand in the Eucharistic controversy, the nature and limitations of his tolerance toward Anabaptists, and his views on the relationship between secular and church governments."--

The collection includes interpretive essays, text editions of two Capito works and documents of a lawsuit that affected his establishment in the city, as well as studies of the problems of producing modern editions of Capito himself and his contemporaries Erasmus, Bucer, Bullinger, and Beza.

The correspondence of Wolfgang CapitonVolume 3 by Wolfgang Capito( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfgang Capito (1478-1541), a leading Christian Hebraist and Catholic churchman who converted to Protestantism, was a pivotal figure in the history of the Reformation. After serving as a professor of theology in Basel and adviser to the archbishop of Mainz, he moved to Strasbourg, which became, largely due to his efforts, one of the most important centres of the Reformation movement after Wittenberg. This penultimate volume in the series is a fully annotated translation of Capito's existing correspondence covering the years 1532-36 and culminating in the Wittenberg Concord between the Lutheran and Reformed churches. The correspondence includes Capito's efforts, alongside those of his colleague Martin Bucer, to negotiate that compromise. Other letters deal with local, political, financial, and doctrinal questions, as well as Capito's personal life. The letters demonstrate the importance of Capito and his colleagues in providing advice in matters concerning the churches in southern Germany and Switzerland, but also regarding the evangelicals in neighbouring France. Milton Kooistra's annotation provides historical context by identifying classical, patristic, and biblical quotations as well as persons and places. Continuing in the series' tradition of rigorous scholarship, this volume provides crucial details on the evolution of Capito's thought and its contribution to the Reformation movement

From humanism to the Reformation: Letters of recommendation in early modern Germany (1490--1560) by Milton Kooistra( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study offers a cultural and intellectual history of letters by humanists and reformers written to recommend candidates for positions in the schools, the clergy, or government service in early modern Germany. These letters were shaped by the educational, cultural, professional or doctrinal agendas of humanism and Protestantism. The thesis illuminates the triangular relationship among authors, those recommended, and the recipients of the letters. Particular emphasis is placed on the role friendship and kinship played in letters of recommendation, for the letters show that a deliberate and continuous attention to the fashioning and advertising of one's album amicorum, one's list of friends, was necessary in order to win powerful patrons among established intellectuals. In the first half of the sixteenth century, the reformation perturbed humanist patterns of personal and professional friendship, as creed and confession came to displace the bonae literae as the common ground amongst friends. This study also explores the rhetorical strategies by which humanists and reformers recommended neophyte scholars for positions in education, church or state. The words and phrases used in letter of recommendation not only provide a graphic depiction of the person of the recommended, but also reveal what their authors identified as the qualities of the ideal job candidate. The rhetoric of the letters changed over the period, as previous concerns for a proper humanist style became subsumed in more immediate concerns of confession, orthodoxy and public concord. The letters enhance our understanding of the job market for people with advanced education, of how people obtained positions, and of the grounds on which hiring decisions were made. Humanists and reformers wrote informal, personal recommendations that were intended just for their friends, but formal recommendations to a university senate, a nobleman or town council. Moreover, they promoted the scholarship of other scholars by writing prefaces to their proteges' publications, using strategies developed for letters of recommendation to recommend the works as well as the men
