Overview

In a parallel situation to the conservative Oxford Movement in the Anglican Church, 300 years after Martin Luther posted Ninety-Five Theses to a church door in Wittenberg, many conservative “Neo-Lutherans” felt the Lutheran church losing its distinctive qualities. Charles Porterfield Krauth was the most prominent leader in American Neo-Lutheranism. In particular, Krauth fought to restore traditional liturgy and the creeds found in The Book of Concord to prominence in the Lutheran Church. These documents, in particular the Augsburg Confession represent a theology that is distinctly Lutheran, yet many American Lutheran’s interpreted these creeds very loosely. Krauth made it his mission as a writer, pastor, and educator to reconstruct a more literal interpretation of these creeds, keeping them in harmony with historical Lutheranism and greater Christianity.

This collection contains Krauth’s translation and commentary on the Augsburg confession and other general creeds, his extended defense of the real presence and other conservative theologies in The Conservative Reformation and its Theology, and Adolph Spaeth’s two-volume biography of Krauth.

About Charles Porterfield Krauth

Charles Porterfield Krauth (1823–1883) was a Lutheran pastor, theologian, and educator. Born in Martinsburg, Virginia, Krauth graduated from Gettysburg College and Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. He then spent 20 years pastoring Lutheran congregations across Virginia and Pennsylvania. In 1861 he left full-time ministry to become the editor of a theological journal, The Lutheran. It became his express goal as editor to restore the Book of Concord to prominence in Lutheran church life. Krauth became professor of systematic theology at the General Council’s seminary. He authored the General Council’s Fundamental Articles of Faith and Church Polity, as well as its congregational constitution. In 1868 he became professor of mental and moral philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania, where he later became vice-provost. In 1880 he visited Europe to explore the scenes of Martin Luther’s life in preparation for a biography of the seminal reformer. This biography was left unfinished at the time of Krauth’s death in 1883.
