Overview

Explore the relationship between poenitenia and law in Melancthon’s theology during his spat with another one of Luther’s disciples—John Agricola of Eisleben. “Questions over the nature of poenitentia and its relation to the law and to the sacrament of penance,” writes Timothy Wengert, “formed the basis of the first public controversy among Luther’s students and profoundly shaped later Lutheranism by making the distinction between law and gospel one of its distinguishing characteristics.”
