Nineteenth century Lutheran Church leader Isaak August Dorner traced the roots of doctrine in a way never seen before. In his major works, History of the Development of the Doctrine of the Person of Christ and A System of Christian Doctrine, Dorner presents historical evidence and philosophical proofs for Christian doctrine as they were understood in his time. He tracks important theological ideas back to their conception and identifies their contribution to Christian theology as a whole.
