Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that Peter Martyr's teaching moves within the classical statements and creedal definitions of the person and work of Christ. Like the other magisterial reformers, he accepted the Christological doctrine of the first four ecumenical councils of Nicaea, Ephesus, Constantinople and Chalcedon as well as the fifth and sixth councils. The chapter discusses the Vermigli's two-nature hermeneutic in his controversy with Johann Brenz. A related issue arose out of the Lutheran/Reformed debate, namely, the theological distincition known as the 'extra calvinisticum'. Peter Martyr's Christology by looking at his dispute with Stancaro regarding Christ's person and work as mediator guided by the conviction that his discussion of the mediatorship of Christ, like that of John Calvin's, lies at the centre of his Christology. For Peter Martyr Christ's death is at the heart of the work of mediation.
