520 |a "We see Calvin most clearly - as a person and as a theologian - against the backdrop of his late medieval context. Older portrayals of Calvin as a father of modern doctrinal systems - popularized in early nineteenth- and twentieth-century accounts of the reformer's life and thought - have been soundly rebuffed, and for good reason. Calvin was, as a point of fact, thoroughly unaware of certain dogmatic patterns that we now recognize as being "modern." He was no more the father of modern critical exegesis than he was the original visionary of modern liberal democratic societies. That is to say, Calvin could not have considered himself a forerunner of something that lay entirely outside his historical purview. Likewise, the young Calvin was, in most respects, a man of his times. And his times were driven by the effort to promulgate and practice the authoritative teachings of the medieval Christian Church. Moreover, Calvin did not utterly disown the intellectual inheritance of his youth following his conversion to the evangelical religion in the early 1530s. Later in life, as a seasoned reformer of the church, Calvin continued to apply with great fervency many of the legal principles and theological methods he had acquired at an early age while studying in Paris, Orléans, and Bourges, albeit with an ever-critical eye toward the need for church reform"--  |c Provided by publisher.
