Girolamo Zanchi, “Confession of the Christian Religion”

Girolamo Zanchi (Latinized as Jerome Zanchius) was one of the principle architects of the Reformation. Like a Protestant Aquinas, Zanchi’s thought shaped all that came after him. In this work (which sometimes goes by the alternate name, The Whole Body of Christian Doctrine), translated and published by John Legat in 1599, Zanchi sets forth the Christian religion in systematic form – beginning with the Scriptures and moving through all the major heads of doctrine, Zanchi sets forth a robustly Reformed and catholic understanding of the faith which we would to well to retrieve today.
