About this product
- DescriptionBefore Martin Luther called upon the Church to return ad fontes to Holy Scripture, Marsilio Fici (1433-1499) and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) endeavored to call the Church to a far different 'font'-the writings of the prisci theologi (ancient theologians) of pagan antiquity. Zoroaster and Hermes Trismegistus were interpreted as inspired teachers whom men such as Fici and Pico believed could provide guidance for the Church in their time. Their students included future popes (most tably Pope Leo X) and leaders of the Renaissance, such as Johannes Reuchlin (1455-1522). Their influence liners to this day in the Traditionalist movement and in the postmodern belief that all religions ultimately lead to the truth. James D. Heiser is Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA) and Pastor of Salem Lutheran Church in Malone, Texas. He also serves as Dean of Missions of the Augustana Ministerium. He earned his M.Div. and S.T.M. at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
