Overview

The private usage of the Scriptures is a right that has had an interesting journey and a surprising amount of controversy. Particularly between the Catholic and Protestant Churches, division has been seen as to whether or not individuals may read the Bible, and several noted theologians have debated the topic heavily: Lessing, Goeze, and Walch. Separating the historical analysis by time period, Adolph Harnack methodically discusses the subject in New Testament Studies, vol. 5: Bible Reading in the Early Church..

About Adolph von Harnack

Adolph von Harnack born in 1851 in Estonia, lived a life devoted to the study of church history and theology. He became a professor at age 24, and taught at the Universities of Leipzig, Giussen, Marbarg, and Berlin until his retirement at age 70. Although he was widely considered to be one of the most influential members of the Protestant church at the turn of the twentieth century, the Church of Germany believed his theology to be off-base and did not allow him to become an accredited clergyman. Harnack’s passion for the history of the Church led him to pen numerous resources on the matter, his most famous work perhaps being What Is Christianity? He continued his studies and writing until his death in 1930.
