Faith, Reason, and Revelation in the Thought of Theodore Beza investigates the direction of religious epistemology under a chief architect of Calvinism (1519-1605). Mallinson contends that Beza consolidated his tradition by balancing the subjective and objective aspects of faith and knowledge. Making use of new editions of Beza's class notes and correspondence, and examining the theological ideas found in Beza's long-neglected New Testament annotations,
this study clarifies the thought of Calvin's successor. The nature of Protestant scholasticism and the relationship between faith and philosophy are observed in context, rather than from the anachronistic
perspectives of modern schools that seek to establish their own continuity with Calvinism.
