Abstract and Keywords
This handbook presents essays from a wide range of scholars about Christian theological literature in the period 1600 to 1800. Our introduction addresses several issues concerning the shape and contents of the handbook: first, the intention and scope of the volume; second, what are the actual boundaries of a study of early modern theology that is broadly assigned to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; third, why we use the term “early modern”; fourth, how early modern theology should be examined, analyzed, and understood given the varied intellectual, social, and political contexts of the era; and fifth, how the present volume is organized.
