This article considers how Athanasius of Alexandria was read by Reformed Protestants of the early modern period. Attention is given to anthologies of patristic material, to John Calvin, Reiner Bachoff (Bachofius), and his Catechesis religionis christianae (1603), Abraham Scultetus’s Medulla theologiae patrum (1606), and Amandus Polanus of Polansdorf’s Symphonia catholica (1607, 1612). The latter three works provide evidence of a direct acquaintance with Athanasius’s writings. Though in comparison with other patristic quotations the Athanasian citations contained in them are in number rather limited, they do come from a broad range of Athanasius’s writings. The references are further not limited to Christology, but deal with a variety of themes relevant to Reformed theology.
