(p.110) 4 The Person of Christ
The Colloquy of Montbéliard

Jill Raitt

Oxford University Press

The doctrine of the person of Christ became the major theological sticking point between Reformed and Lutheran theologians in the second half of the sixteenth century. From the Maulbronn Colloquy of 1564 through the bitter battles about the meaning of kenosis in the first quarter of the seventeenth century, discussions of the Lord as Supper and discussions of the manner of Christ's presence became christological arguments. The arguments deal with the question of the relation of the natures of Christ to each other and to Christ's person. The Colloquy of Montbéliard provides an example not only of the relation of politics to religion in this troubled time but also of the polemical debate that went on in the period among Protestants and also between each of the major Protestant churches and the Catholics, especially in the empire.
