Reformation Studies: Essays in Honor of Roland H. Bainton

Excerpt

The idea of a Festschrift is slowly gaining ground in the American scene. The present volume is written by students peculiarly indebted to Roland H. Bainton of Yale, and its intention is to memorialize that sense of personal and professional obligation. At the same time, it is the rising interest in Reformation studies--Professor Bainton's, area of particular concentration--which gives rise to the hope that the studies here published may add to the body of knowledge in a field of Church History as well as give honor to one of its most distinguished practitioners.

The volume is so planned as to give attention both to the classical Reformation and to the often-neglected "Left Wing"--whose personalities, movements, and general significance Dr. Bainton has done so much to rescue from obscurity.

The writers include clergymen, college professors, and seminary faculty members. This too is appropriate, for he to whom we pay tribute has blessed both the people of God and the republic of learning in his ministry.

Special thanks are due to Ruth Woodruff Bainton, for both giving and keeping counsel; to Dr. Raymond P. Morris, for once again giving timely bibliographical assistance to a colleague's students; to the Historische Kommission für Hessen und Waldeck, for permission to publish the translation from the Marburg Disputation (pp. 147-167); to members of the editorial staff of John Knox Press, for enthusiasm and meticulous attention to detail. The editor wants to express his gratitude also to Dr. Charles T. Lester, Dean of the Graduate School of Emory University, for direct encouragement to this project, and to Dorothy Anderson and Dorothy Laughbaum for gifted and painstaking secretarial services.
