For more than a century, the relationship of the Reformation to subsequent developments in Protestant thought, particulary to the ‘scholastic’ or ‘orthodox’ theology of the late sixteenth and the seventeenth century, has been a subject of study by historians and theologians. In this paper a survey of the (widely) divergent theories of older and recent scholarship regarding the continuity or discontinuity between the theology of the Reformers and the doctrine of their successors is presented. In conclusion some proposals are made for future research. The basic assumption of this paper is that the term ‘Reformed Scholasticism’ should not be used pejoratively, or in a laudatory sense: it should be used purely descriptive, to indicates a methodological approach to theological questions.
