The Reformation did not represent a radical break from the epistemological vision of scripture developed in the Western tradition. Initially, valiant efforts were made to focus on the soteriological significance of scripture as mediating the gospel, but these were quickly overtaken by the need to supply a justification for the new and sometimes radical theologies developed by the Reformers. That justification took the form of a robust theological foundationalism that sought to ground all theological claims in scripture alone. Tradition and teaching magisterium were sidelined or set aside.
