Small Steps toward Rationalism?

image of Journal of Reformed Theology

Recent research on Genevan theologian Benedict Pictet (1655–1724) concludes that he is a “transitional” theologian between the high Reformed orthodoxy of his uncle, Francis Turretin, and the “enlightened orthodoxy” of his cousin (and son of Francis) Jean-Alphonse Turretin. This essay shows that Pictet is remarkably consistent with Francis on the issues of the relationship of faith and reason and natural theology, and thereby calls into question Pictet’s place in the typical narrative of Reformed orthodoxy’s small steps towards rationalism.
