Overview

In this five-volume opus Jaroslav Pelikan traces the development of Christian doctrine from the first century to the twentieth:

  • The Emergence of the Catholic Tradition (100-600)
  • The Spirit of Eastern Christendom (600-1700)
  • The Growth of Medieval Theology (600-1300)
  • Reformation of Church and Dogma (1300-1700)
  • Christian Doctrine and Modern Culture (since 1700)

These five volumes trace the history and thought of the visible church from 100 AD into the 20th Century. Distinctive in his awareness of both eastern and western traditions, Pelikan draws deeply on primary sources. The result is perhaps the most impressive history of doctrine yet completed. For its scope as well as its depth of research, this is rewarding reading.

  • Traces the history and thought of the visible church from 100 AD into the 20th Century
  • Focuses upon the subtle relation between what the faithful believed and what the church confessed as dogma
  • Identifies and describes the development of the distinctive forms taken by Christian doctrine in its early expression
Pelikan’s The Christian Tradition [is] a series for which they must have coined words like ’magisterial’.

—Martin Marty, Commonweal

Pelikan’s book marks not only the end of a dazzling scholarly effort but the end of an era as well. There is reason to suppose that nothing quite like it will be tried again.

—Harvey Cox, Washington Post Book World

    This has a pride of place on my shelves - wonderful, deep, erudite, outstanding. And now I'll be able to search my text thanks to the add print library feature! That's win-win, Logos.

    This is an excellent resource unreservedly recommended for any student of the history of theology. From a very preliminary check, the linking looks excellent. Faithlife is showing this as a pre-pub, but if you buy a Logos 10 base package that offers it, as of today you can get immediate access.

    I can't wait to have access to these volumes. I can't believe that Logos is actually putting them out. If all the links work, this will be a fantastic resource for those of us interested in historical theology.
