(p.17) 2 Prophets and Prophecy up to Calvin
John Calvin as Sixteenth-Century Prophet

Jon Balserak

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the theme of prophecy in the patristic, medieval, and Early Modern eras. It argues that two traditions, or trajectories of thought, on the topic develop within the period. One tradition focuses on the reception of knowledge of a supernatural character. The other focuses on scripture interpretation. It argues, further, that entering the Early Modern era one finds both a continuation of these two traditions as well as a modifying of them to produce a mixture of the two.

Keywords:   prophecy, medieval, Early Modern, patristic, revelation, interpretation
