Moving beyond the basic presentation of sources, materials, and methods, this chapter examines the ethos of the study in the 17th century. After looking at some of the approaches to theological study published by the Reformed, this chapter looks both at the large-scale program of study and spiritual formation recommended by later Calvinists and at personal results of that program as detailed by one of its chief exponents. Not only does the chapter register continuity in intention and ethos in the development of Reformed thought between the time of the Reformation and the era of scholastic orthodoxy, it also documents the strong sense of calling and piety that accompanied and enriched the educational programs of the Reformed orthodox.
