  1. The Effect of Philipp Melanchthon's Separation of Philosophy and Theology: Lutheran Educational Reforms in Context of Contemporary Catholic Educators

    Spring 2006 — Pages 134-153

The study also places Melanchthon in context by comparing him to contemporary Catholic educators. Melanchthon did not solely attach himself to either secular philosophy or sacred theology but found a synergistic balance that allowed him to systematize not only theological doctrine but also humanist education.
