Doctrinal Theology

Author: Schmid, Heinrich (1811-1885)

Schmid's text is not so much a systematic theology, but rather a compilation of theological statements from fourteen prominent Lutheran theologians of the sixteenth and seventeenth century. The words of such theologians as Philip Melanchthon, Martin Chemnitz, Nicholas Selnecker, and several others are included. Schmid's collection of texts ranges from Lutheran liturgies to treatises used by universities. When read together, these texts offer up a detailed historical picture of Lutheranism's development as a community of thought and practice. Schmid includes short biographical and occupational sketches of each cited theologian in an appendix to guide the reader.
