Example text

In an early polemical work, Der alt gloub, translated by Myles Coverdale in 1547 as The Olde Fayth, Bullinger showed in broad and sweeping terms how, within the conflict of the Two Churches, the covenant line encapsulated the only proper understanding of Natural Law. Reliance on anything but their interpretation and example, and the Scriptural account of God's law, led headlong into Satan's Church. , pp. 116-17, 118, 189. 82 Melanchthon on Christian 1965), pp. 128-9. Doctrine. Loci Communes 1555, e d .

For Melanchthon believed that the sixteenth-century Reformation shared the experience of the past history of the Church because at all times the true believers suffered persecution. The Church enjoyed pure doctrine and godly members when led by God through difficulties, for * in deserto maior fuit gloria huius populi, quam unquam florente regno in terrae Canaan'. 72 Harrison's analysis revealed a different meaning in history, and one which he found specially relevant to the unsatisfactory state of the Elizabethan Church.

In an analogous situation Harrison had sifted the knowledge he had acquired when a papist, and amongst the rejected dross was the Hermetic philosophy to which Orpheus had been deemed an important witness. Orpheus' attempt to explain parts of human experience by something other than the doctrine transmitted by the covenant line, revealed his failure to subordinate his reason to the revelations of divine grace. This crucial failing found active expression in the contrast between Orpheus' repetition of error and Isaiah's 'most vehement admonitions, reprehensions and consolations evermore applying the doctrine as he saw cause and the estate of the people and children of Israel required'.
