Chapter Summary

This chapter demonstrates how the Spanish theologian Antonio del Corro appropriated the figure of Paul in his Dialogus theologicus quo epistola Divi Pauli apostoli ad Romanos explanatur (London, 1574; English, 1575). It shows that in his Dialogus theologicus, Antonio del Corro represented Paul as the apostle of the Gospel of God's universal redemptive grace. Antonio del Corro's construction of Paul was an important aspect of his irenic theology. Antonio del Corro's doctrinal conflict with the stranger churches of London is the essential backdrop against which his highly contextualized appropriation of Paul needs to be understood. Accordingly, due attention will be devoted to the reconstruction of this context of doctrinal conflict. The chapter presents an immediate historical context of Corro's Dialogus theologicus. It discusses three strategies employed by Corro in his appropriation of the figure of Paul in a context of doctrinal conflict.

Keywords: Antonio del Corro; Dialogus theologicus; doctrinal conflict; Paul; universal redemption
