The work of Heiko Oberman in breaking down the conventional barriers between the medieval and the modern has been a starting point for scholars focused on a variety of philosophical and theological questions. In October 2000 a symposium was held to mark Prof. Oberman's 70th birthday at which it was intended to honour him with a review of the main themes of his scholarship.The fields chosen for treatment were the theology of the Reformers, the Reformation itself, and the scholastic theology of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and leading scholars in the field were invited to present papers. Some chose to engage directly with specific aspects of his major preoccupations, while others presented current work that bore out his instincts as to fruitful directions for research. The essays from the symposium published as a tribute to his memory include papers by Scott Hendrix, Berndt Hamm, Jane Dempsey Douglass, Christopher Ocker, PeterBlickle, Andrew Pettegree, William J. Courtenay, Nicolette Mout, and Francis Oakley. G. H. M. Posthumus Meyjes provides a life of Heiko Augustinus Oberman.Table of ContentsContributors include: Scott Hendrix, Berndt Hamm, Jane Dempsey Douglass, Christopher Ocker, Peter Blickle, Andrew Pettegree, William J.
