John Calvin, Friedrich Schleiermacher and Karl Barth are three major figures associated with Reformed Christian thought. In spite of this commonality, their theological writings bear important and interesting differences, not only in terms of historical context but also in terms of writing and core theological commitments. This course will look carefully at each author, thinking comparatively about respective approaches to God, scripture, cognition, sense, and affection, the question of natural theology, sacraments, and the relation of church and state. This course serves as an introduction to theology, offering close engagement with work of three major figures in their theological and historical contexts. At the same time, we will consider the orientation of Reformed Protestantism as historical and living tradition.
