Chapter Summary

In preparing this chapter, the author studied the 118 letters printed in Georgius Cassanders Opera omnia, letters dating from 15571565, most of which deal with his efforts to take theological doctrines and ecclesiastical traditions that are in dispute between Roman Catholics and Protestants and test them against Holy Scripture, religious tradition, and the judgement of early-Christian and medieval theologians. The letters are directed to kindred spirits and friends, Roman Catholic opponents, and rulers and prelates who called in Cassanders assistance to find a solution to religious disputes. The chapter focuses on the imagery that Cassander uses in his letters to describe theological disputes and the lamentable state of the Church. It presents the differences between Cassanders letters to his friends, his opponents, prelates and princes. Excerpts from letters are presented in which Cassander deals with statements in his printed books concerning theological matters.

Keywords: ecclesiastical traditions; Georgius Cassander; Opera omnia; religious peace; Roman Catholics; theological disputes
