A Conflict on the Church and the Sacraments

How Rome and the Reformation differed at Regensburg in 1541

by Steven Paas

According to popular thought, it was the doctrine of Justification that divided Rome and the Reformation in the 16th Century. However in a broader theological interpretation, the real breaking point was the question of the Church and Sacraments. The issue of Church and Sacraments has also remained important in the African context. Theology from an African perspective requires an Ecclesiology that rests of the Scriptures and that is sensitive and relevant to the specific features of African culture. This study aims to contribute to these discussions.
