(p.235) 8 Conclusion
Faith, Reason, and Revelation in Theodore Beza (1519–1605)

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the contribution of Theodore Beza to the debate concerning the relation between faith and knowledge. It states that even after Beza's appointment as rector of the Genevan Academie in Switzerland, he remained true to the Reformed tradition even though he fortified the objective aspect of Christian belief. He has also balanced the subjective and objective elements of Christian belief, and highlighted the evidential arguments for Scripture in response to the constraints of the Pyrrhonic Counter-Reformation polemics.

Keywords:   Theodore Beza, faith, knowledge, Christian belief, Reformed tradition, polemics
