Luther and Other Leaders of the Reformation

Author: Tulloch, John (1823-1886)

John Tulloch, a beloved professor at the University of St Andrews, was a moderate liberal theologian who sought to reconcile the insights of higher criticism of the Bible with the tenets of Christian orthodoxy. For example, Tulloch had published a critical essay in response to Ernest Renan, who had read Scripture so reductionistically that he denied the divinity of Christ and the existence of miracles. This work, Luther and Other Leaders of the Reformation, traces the origins and unfolding of the Protestant Reformation across Europe. As well as Luther and Calvin, Tulloch recounts the involvement of Knox, Hus, Wycliffe, and even some of the pre-Reformers in bringing on the reformation of the Catholic Church. Luther’s career and character were of particular interest to Tulloch, and the scholar includes an in-depth examination of Luther’s life and writings.
