Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter offers a brief overview of Thomas Erastus's later career in Heidelberg and Basel. The biographical treatment is followed by a survey of the reception of Erastus's thought in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Erastus's ideas on church-state relations found their greatest resonance in the Netherlands. Erastus's greatest advocate and scholar were the great English jurist and polymath John Selden. Selden had been a leading member of the Erastian faction in the Long Parliament and a prominent lay assessor in the Westminster Assembly. The primary goal of the chapter has been to explore how the Heidelberg context influenced Erastus's thought and action. The author concludes with these brief observations on the question of continuity and change in the work of Erastus.
