In celebration of the first presentation of the Melanchthon Award to the Catholic theologian Siegfried Wiedenhofer, well-known scholars dealt with fundamental problems of the historical conflicts between denominations in lectures and discussion groups. The essays in this volume study the relationship between the humanists and the reform movement and the various ways of drawing on church tradition, a recourse based on denomination. The authors examine the discussions between Melanchthon and the Old Catholics. They explore Melanchthon’s relevance today as the greatest ecumenical figure of the Reformation and give examples of Melanchthon’s reception among the people. This book, which contains many illustrations, sheds light on a diversity of subjects in the life and work of an influential man whom his contemporaries called »the teacher of Germany.«
