Review of Jaroslav Pelikan The Christian Tradition Reformation of Church and Dogma 1300 1700 volume 4 Pelikan continues his story of Western Christendom As in volume 3 the events leading up to the Reformation can be seen as fractures in the Augustinian synthesis While Warfield is incorrect to say that the Reformation was Augustine vs Augustine there is some truth in it as both sides could claim Augustine as their championWhile it is a truism in historical theology it needs to be said that doctrine does not develop in a vacuum It is na ve to claim that Luther opened the bible and like anyone else seeing pure bible refound the doctrine of justification by faith alone Eually na ve is the view that the ancient church taught the Mass and Transubstantiation in the same way as the 4th Lateran Council in fact it s easily demonstrable to show that late Catholic practices of the Mass are obvious departures from the apostolic norm and Catholics admit this as well The student of history is then to ask If it is so obvious to my generation about doctrine why did past generations see it differently Pelikan tells the narrative of early modernity in the West He shows that philosophical and cultural pressures formed the context in which the doctrines of the Western Church both Reform and Catholic Pelikan explains the pressures of medieval nominalism upon the Christian world While he doesn t pin all of the world s evils on Scotus and Occam they do force the Western narrative forward in ways that would provemomentous The cracks in the Augustinian synthesis appear when Wycliffe and Hus take part of Augustine s view of the church as the body of the predestined This opens the seeds for Reform Pelikan gives a thorough explanation of the gospel as the treasure of the Church At this time still being a Lutheran Pelikan brings his intimate familiarity of Lutheranism to the discussion And he is not blind to Luther s theological faults Luther s denial of free will opened himself to the church of Manicheanism Through linguistic gymnastics later Lutheran thinkers would soften this charge Calvin carried Luther forward with a few exceptions While Luther denied free will and affirmed predestination as did Augustine so it seems Calvin was the first major thinker to affirm double predestination No Augustine didn t teach that but it was consistent with his thought I think Calvin is correct in this but Pelikan doesn t expound upon it If you agree with St Augustine on defining God as absolute divine simplicity which all Westerns Protestant or Catholic agree and you place God s will within that absolute simple essence then double predestination is the conclusion And frankly is there any real pastoral difference between predestination to life and passing over the reprobate versus predestinating both since both go to hell I think Calvin has read Augustine correctly on this point Roman Catholic ParticularityThe Roman church for all its opposition to Luther admitted that the Reformation forced Rome to deal with sensitive problems from the conciliar movement in the previous century Part of the dilemma of the Reformation was that the Reformers were not starting from a blank sheet The 16th century inherited many unresolved problems One could honestly admit the Reformers asked the right uestions As Pelikan notes What the Protestant Reformation had done with its doctrine of justification by faith alone as the debates at the Council of Trent were to make clear was to bring into the open some of the unresolved uestions about justification in late medieval theology 253 The Council of Trent was aware of this They knew that while they would appeal to antiuity some had the suspicion that antiuity was a slippery eel Pelikan notes Although that pluralism was voiced throughout the debates at Trent the council fathers sought in their definition to respond to the Reformation without involving themselves in the disputes of several schools of theology within Roman Catholicism 280 Ultimately though Trent could not answer all uestions Both Trent and Geneva would have to deal with the horror of the Radical Reformation The Protestants were particularly sensitive to this charge Were not the chaotics eg Anabaptists also using sola scriptura if radically What separates the Magisterials from the Radicals on this point besides the formers apparently arbitrary appeal to tradition In response to this the Magisterials posited that Scripture norms the lesser norms A nice response to be sure but one effective only to those who like Latin phrasesBoth Rome and the Protestants would form their covenant theological systems taking them in different directions While the broad overview of Covenant theology was simple and little difference between both camps the specifics were tricky problems Reformed are still facing See the self slaughter that is the response to the Federal Vision Rome too had its internal problems Jansenism had raised other difficulties with Augustine and grace the response to which created the famous middle knowledge of Molina and would later set the stage for Henri de Lubac
