VAN WYK, Ignatius W.C. (Natie). Philipp Melanchthon: A short introduction. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2017, vol.73, n.1, pp.1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.

Philipp Melanchthon was one of the most influential theologians of the Reformation of the 16th century. He was responsible for transforming the secondary and tertiary educational systems in Germany. He was responsible for a new theological curriculum. He wrote the first Protestant 'systematic theology' and was the author of the Confessio Augustana. He is called the 'teacher of Germany and Europe'. In spite of all the praises, most South Africans know very little about this important theologian. In this year of jubilee, it is imperative that a short introduction to his life and work be published - in the hope that he would receive more attention in future from South African scholars.
