Chapter 5 examines the agreement reached at the Colloquy of Regensburg (1541) on justification (including the evaluation of formulations on the doctrine of justification from important preceding colloquies and conferences). This chapter argues that Bucer believed that the evangelical understanding of justification was present in the formulations from Leipzig (1539), Worms (1540–1541), and Regensburg (1541) and that they are compatible with Bucer’s earlier view found in the Romans Commentary. For Bucer reform could not be achieved at the expense of the truth of justification as he understood it.
