throughout the 16th century, many Reformers echoed Erasmus’s declare that the Scriptures have been transparent, will be understood via even the lowliest servant, and will be translated into the vernacular and positioned within the palms of everybody. humans didn't require the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church to properly interpret the that means of the Scriptures. even if, inside of a number of brief years, the leaders of the Magisterial Reformers, Martin Luther and Huldrych Zwingli, had created their very own Protestant types of the magisterium.

This paintings strains how the doctrine of the readability of Scripture came upon expression within the writings of Balthasar Hubmaier, admirer of Erasmus and Luther, and affiliate of Zwingli. As Hubmaier engaged in theological debate with rivals, onetime pals, and different Anabaptists, he sought to elucidate his knowing of this serious reformation doctrine. Chronologically tracing the improvement of Hubmaier’s hermeneutic as he interacted with Erasmus, Luther, Zwingli, and Hans Denck offers an invaluable technique of extra competently figuring out his position within the matrix of the sixteenth-century Reformations.

“Scholars have lengthy understood the ‘clarity of Scripture’ as a hermeneutic for Reformation figures within the 16th century. earlier, besides the fact that, nobody has exhaustively studied Scripture’s perspicuity within the writings of Anabaptism’s maximum early theologian. Graeme Chatfield has admirably rectified this oversight with this ebook whereas adroitly putting Hubmaier within the context of his Reformation contemporaries. available and readable, this e-book is helping us greater clutch Hubmaier’s considering, his affects, and his contributions to his church and to ours.”
—Brian C. Brewer, Truett Seminary, Baylor University

“Chatfield’s paintings provides to the checklist of modern monographs in this chief and student of the Reformation period. curiosity in features of Hubmaier’s theology have grown, now not least simply because he doesn't healthy simply with the Swiss Anabaptists. Chatfield has explored Hubmaier’s method of Scripture and is derived to the persuasive end that his process is extra reminiscent of Zwingli and Luther than the Swiss Anabaptists. a very good learn that can pay cautious attention.”
—Keith G. Jones, Rector, foreign Baptist Theological Seminary

“The interpretation of Scripture used to be an incredible factor within the sixteenth-century reformations, isolating Roman Catholic students, the magisterial reformers, and the radicals. A key theologian during this debate was once Balthasar Hubmaier, whose contribution, and people of his acquaintances and competitors, is skillfully and helpfully set out in a close examine that chronologically follows the advance and development of his proposal in this crucial doctrine for all Christian traditions and eras. Chatfield’s study is a invaluable and welcome boost to scholarship.”
