This collection of essays focuses on Melanchthon's relationship to Luther. Contrary to the previous research, Heinz Scheible elaborates on the similarities between the two reformers and determines that the only theological difference between them was in the doctrine of the Eucharist, of which Melanchthon, with Luther's agreement, wrote a version which was an acceptable compromise, a version which is still valid today. The same is true of Melanchthon's ethics, which the author believes are of great value in the global dialog among the religions. Further subjects in the texts include the Upper Rhine humanists, the school and university reform with the integration of Aristotelism, the doctrine of justification, the Augsburg Interim and several of Melanchthon's personal and regional relationships as well as his influential critic Karl Holl.
