Following the development of systematic presentations of the Christian faith and the emphases upon pedagogy and formation in which doctrine is lived as, simultaneously, practice, and reflection, this chapter traces the new developments that happened in and through the Reformation. It begins with a discussion of the modernity, secularization and disenchantment question in order to show both the continuities in Protestant dogmatics with the older traditions (concerned with embodiment and engagement) and the innovations emerging. Its primary focus is Melanchthon’s Loci communes 1521 explored in the context of the artists Dürer, Holbein the Younger, and Cranach, the rhetoric of revolution, and the lingering enchantment of Protestanism and White Magic.
