Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of concepts of subsequent chapters covered in the book Claude Pajon (1626-1685) and the Academy of Saumur. The book examines the sources and influences of Pajon's thought, so as to be able to place it in the context of seventeenth-century Reformed theology. The reference to the academy of Saumur has been included to reflect not only the question of Pajon's place in the trajectory of the so-called 'theology of Saumur', but also to point to the context in which the first phase of the Pajonist controversies took place. This chapter examines the role played in Pajon's election and establishment by the difficulties the academy had experienced in appointing successors to the three professors who had carried Cameron's torch for the past thirty years.

Keywords: Pajon scholarship; reformed theology; Saumur
