Chapter Summary

Based on decades of solid scholarship, Willem van Asselt recently published his opus magnum on Johannes Cocceius. In this fresh reappraisal of Cocceius federal theology, he convincingly disproves some biases found in older research. As Herman J. Selderhuis has shown recently, some clear points of contact between Melanchthon and Voetius can be identified. This chapter focuses on few of these points of contact, particularly on the concept of science and the doctrine of natural theology. Thereby Voetius work and private library form the heuristic starting point. Furthermore, there will be special attention for continuities and discontinuities from the point of view of doctrinal content.
