An account of the semantic structure of Melanchthon's pre-Lutheran view of the world, this text is articulated mostly on his rhetorical theory that emerged in the years 1509-1518. It shows how this semantic structure shaped his Lutheran theological language. It offers a hermeneutical procedure that must lead inevitably to historiographical revisions on the subject of faith and reason. The book provides theologians with an example of a historically-influential theologian in whose theology social setting, truth-theory, linguistics, theological method, and Christian doctrine are intertwined, engendering contemporary discussion of how to assess Christian traditions and their authoritative claims.
