The Marburg Colloquy

Carl Trueman speaks about the Marburg Colloquy, a meeting called by Philip I of Hesse to unite the Protestant states in a political alliance. To accomplish such a union, he sought theological agreement between Martin Luther and Ulrich Zwingli. While Luther and Zwingli could agree on fourteen theological points laid out at the meeting, they could not come to terms on the real presence of Christ in the Lord’s Supper.

Dr. Trueman is professor of biblical and religious studies at Grove City College.

For a primary source by Zwingli I recommend his ‘De vera et falsa religione commentarius’ (1525). It is the most comprehensive work by Zwingli and could be considered his systematic theology. In a seminary paper I have compared the importance of the doctrine of justification in Melanchthon’s Loci communes (1521) and Zwingli’s Commentarius (1525). I came to the conclusion, that Zwingli’s major theme is the quest for the true religion, that is to say, the right way to worship God, whereas Melanchthon’s major theme is the quest for justification.
The Latin text of Zwingli’s Commentarius can be read here: http://www.irg.uzh.ch/static/zwingli-werke/index.php?n=Werk.50.
