This chapter moves past the basic issue of definition and approach and raises the question of the actual sources and materials used by the Protestant scholastics of the 17th century in the fashioning of their theological world, noting the Renaissance and medieval backgrounds of Reformed orthodoxy, and arguing that the sources used and the way they were used, support the redefinition and reappraisal proposed in the initial study. It examines the following sources: Scripture, exegesis, and ancillary disciplines; the ancient creeds and the confessions of the Reformed churches; the Church Fathers; the theological tradition; and the philosophical tradition.

Keywords:   reformed theology, 17th-century Protestants, reformed orthodoxy, Scripture, Church Fathers
