Ecumenical Dialogue Between Reformers And Orthodox Under The Ottomans (15-16th Century), Svetoslav Svetoszarov Ribolov 2024 Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski", Bulgaria

Ecumenical Dialogue Between Reformers And Orthodox Under The Ottomans (15-16th Century), Svetoslav Svetoszarov Ribolov

Occasional Papers on Religion in Eastern Europe

Despite the capture of Constantinople by the Ottomans in 1453, the Orthodox Church continued to make contacts with the West. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Patriarchs Joasaph II and Jeremias II had ecumenical contacts and theological dialogues with two generations of Reformers. Martin Luther and Melanchthon, and later Martin Crusius, Jakob Andrеä, and their associates in Wittenberg took up the initiative for a serious ecumenical dialogue with Constantinople. Despite a sincere desire on both sides, lack of a common methodological framework in the talks did not allow for significant results. In the end, both sides did not …


Review Of Keith Watkins. "Eucharist And Unity: A Theological Memoir." St. Louis, Mo: Christian Board Of Publication, 2023., D. Duane Cummins 2024 Johns Hopkins University

Review Of Keith Watkins. "Eucharist And Unity: A Theological Memoir." St. Louis, Mo: Christian Board Of Publication, 2023., D. Duane Cummins

Journal of Discipliana

Watkins’ studied grasp of the eucharist (Lord’s Supper, Communion) shaped his thought of it as a fellowship with the living Christ, bringing renewal to the church—and in his writings, his teaching, and in his pastoral ministry, Watkins deemed the eucharist as the focal point of liturgy. He believed the eucharist to be the key to understanding the catholicity of the church—the center of the one faith—and the core around which unity could occur. The eucharist, determined Watkins in Eucharist and Unity, is the means of recalling the sacrifice of Christ, of recovering a fullness of the meaning of church.


Review Of Richard T. Hughes And James L. Gorman, Reviving The Ancient Faith: The Story Of Churches Of Christ In America, 3rd Edition (Grand Rapids, Mi: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2024), DOUGLAS A. FOSTER 2024 Abilene Christian University

Review Of Richard T. Hughes And James L. Gorman, Reviving The Ancient Faith: The Story Of Churches Of Christ In America, 3rd Edition (Grand Rapids, Mi: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2024), Douglas A. Foster

Journal of Discipliana

With skill and insight James Gorman has brought Richard Hughes’s 1996 classic history of the character of Churches of Christ to the present (2022), incorporating new scholarship since the 1980s, adding original material, and streamlining the narrative. In the first edition Hughes developed his interpretive premises in detail with extensive examples in two sections containing fourteen chapters (“The Making of a Sect” and “The Making of a Denomination”). Gorman has crafted a third section (“The Fragmentation of a Denomination”) from material taken from Hughes’s section two, adding an entirely new chapter on the twenty-first century, and reducing the book’s total …

Critical Edition Of The Summe Of Christian Religion Delivered By Zacharias Ursinua, Taylor Trenta 2023 Calvin University

Critical Edition Of The Summe Of Christian Religion Delivered By Zacharias Ursinua, Taylor Trenta

University Honors Papers

Originally delivered by Zacharius Ursinus along with his work on the Heidelberg Catechism, The Summe of Christian Religion is an expansion on his contributions to the literature of Christian faith. The version, translated to English by Henry Parry, contributes to the depth of this reformed way of thinking across sixteenth to seventeenth century Western Europe; presented in the form of questions and explanations, this type of religious text is important for expanding on theological thoughts.
