Chapter Summary

Peter Martyr Vermigli's interpretation of Nikomachi's ethics thus aims not only to explain, but also to critically evaluate the Aristotelian ethics to determine the limits of their validity in the Christian context. The template for Vermiglis ethics lectures formed the Greek text of the Nicomachean ethics, which he translated into Latin to students and interpreted. In his Disputatio contra scholasticam theologiam (1517) Martin Luther had the Aristotelian doctrine of virtue decidedly opposed to the Gospel message of salvation by grace alone. Philipp Melanchthon ethics gives a theological justification, so the absolute separation of ethics and theology is clearly illustrated by virtue of their different objectives, objects and subjects in Keckermann. While Melanchthon and Keckermann achieved by their division between moral philosophy and theology, peaceful coexistence of both disciplines, Vermigli is more anxious to investigate the possibility of positive relations. The original text of the chapter is in German.
