This chapter discusses the remaining seven premises for reappraisal which deal with more specific issues and problems that arise out of the discussion of general issues. Here, “scholasticism” is understood as primarily a term indicating method, giving recognition to the relationship between method and content; to the methodologically nonscholastic works of nominally “scholastic” thinkers, notably works of biblical interpretation; and to a set of issues relating to the intellectual and methodological diversity of the era of the Reformation and the era of the orthodoxy. It also pays attention to the theological problem underlying much of the secondary literature, from the vantage point of the current work of reappraisal. What is problematic from a methodological perspective in the study of developing Protestant thought is not the absence of duplication but its expectation.
