Continental Protestant Dogmatics of the 16th and 17th Centuries – Timelines

Two versions of a timeline (I and II) covering 1500-1720 CE: Reformed and Lutheran theologians and their works

Continental Protestant Dogmatics of the 16th and 17th Centuries are timelines that cover Reformed and Lutheran theologians (orthodox and controversial) and their most influential works. The timelines also show major Church confessions and other contextual events.

Two versions are combined in one PDF document.

  • Version one ( I ) is less detailed, with fewer theologians (though more of those who are controversial).
  • Version two ( II ) is more detailed, with more theologians, especially early reformers (though less controversial theologians).
