This study looks at another aspect of the developments discussed in this book from the vantage point of the late 17th century. It notes the critical appropriation of categories from the older scholasticism and within the framework of the definitions examined, and argues against the fairly standard claim in much of the 20th-century scholarship that thinkers moved away from the perspectives of the Reformation into various forms of rationalism. In Protestant circles, particularly among the Reformed, Francis Turretin is virtually equated with “Protestant scholasticism”. His Institutio theologicae elencticae stands at the apex of the development of scholastic theology in the post-Reformation era, prior to the decline of the Protestant system.
