Medievalists explore the type of theology called scholasticism as it was practiced between the Reformation and the Enlightenment, and show how elements of it persevere in modern systematic theology. Their topics include the problem of intellectual reform, synchronic contingency and the significance of Cornelis Elleboogius' Disputationes de Tetragrammato to the analysis of his life and work, Melanchthonian thought in Gisbertus Voetilus' scholastic doctrine of God, justification by faith and the early Arminian controversy, omniscient and eternal God, Edwardsian theodicy, and why a trinitarian dynamics requires open scholasticism.
