Hunnius, Aegidius: The Christian Table of Duties

A product could not be loaded.
Aegidius Hunnius (1550–1603) was among the most significant of the Lutheran theologians of the early years of the Age of Lutheran Orthodoxy (1580–1713). From 1576 to 1592, Hunnius served on the theological faculty of the University of Marburg and then joined the faculty of the University of Wittenberg in 1592, helping to restore Lutheran teaching and practice in Saxony during the reign of Duke Friedrich Wilhelm I. It was during his years in Marburg that Hunnius completed his sermons on the Small Catechism, to which his twelve sermons on “The Christian Table of Duties” were appended. Rydecki’s translation is based on the revised edition of Hunnius’ sermons. Hunnius’ sermons on the Table of Duties fill a significant gap in much of the confirmation instruction which takes place today. Hunnius’ sermons are a valuable corrective to this common shortcoming, and will be of enduring aid to Lutheran pastors and laity.
