Bucer, Ephesians and Biblical Humanism: The Exegete as by N. Scott Amos

By N. Scott Amos

This publication 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 booklet is established on his 1550 Cambridge lectures on Ephesians, and investigates them of their ancient context, exploring what kind of a theologian Bucer used to be. The lectures are tested to determine how they signify 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 components, the publication first units the ancient context for the lectures, together with a large cartoon of scholastic technique 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 was once a theologian of the biblical humanist tuition, inspired via the strategy Erasmus set forth within the Ratio Verae Theologiae within which real theology starts off, ends, and is healthier “done” as an workout within the exegesis of the observe of God.
