Chapter Summary

This chapter introduces the collection of preserved letters and explores the methodological difficulties concerning their evaluation, before extracting the implication of the theological reflections contained in the letters and illustrating these by means of examples. Vermigli does not appear to have taken much care to preserve the letters received, as can be deduced from the fact that the vast majority of correspondence consists of own dispatches to others in whose legacies were subsequently handed down. The correspondence with Zurich's theologians Konrad Pellikan, Rudolph Gualther, Johannes Wolf and Ludwig Lavater consists of 13 letters. The importance of the letter as a means of communication during the time of reformation cannot be over-estimated.

Keywords: epistolary; theological reflections; Zurich
