The Colloquy of Montbéliard

The colloquy not only failed to unite Lutherans and Calvinists but fanned polemical flames and resulted in a bitter publishing war. In spite of Theodore Beza's plea that notaries be engaged to produce a protocol that the collocutors could sign, this was not done. Instead, Lucas Osiander and others of Jacob Andreae's party kept notes that Andreae then used to produce Acta of the colloquy. When the Acta appeared, Beza could not allow the ball to remain in Andreae's court. In 1587, he published his Responsioand early in 1588, his pars altera. Andreae returned the ball, and by February 1588 he had written a refutation of Beza's Responsio. Andreae's Epitome appeared in Latin and German. It was only in 1634 that Montbéliard became Lutheran.
