und Regensburg (1532)
By Wolfgang Simon
Distributed by Coronet Books
Martin Bucer, a Protestant reformer based in Strasbourg, was of great importance as a religious leader, a theologian and an ecumenical mediator in 16th century Europe. Bucer's correspondence with the leading figures of his time contains numerous unguarded comments on the history of pivotal developments and events. Based on his recently published correspondence from the years 1530-1532, the authors explore Bucer's contribution to the Reformation. They focus on Bucer's impact on the Reformation in Southern Germany and Switzerland, his theology (understanding of the Scriptures, the theology of the Lord's Supper, his concept of truth and tolerance) as well as his relationships with influential people of the period (Luther and Melanchthon among others).
