Since the advent of the church, there were attempts to reconcile the four gospels into a chronological and ordered narrative. The 16th century saw a rise in the production in Gospel harmonies, as the burgeoning Protestant movement and its offshoots attempted to decipher the true nature of the Gospels. After Martin Luther, Martin Chemnitz and Johann Gerhard are often recognized as the greatest theologians of the Lutheran Church. This book is a valuable Lutheran interpretation of the Harmony of the first four books of the New Testament. Chemnitz published Chapters 1-51 in 1593, succeeded by Leyser in 1603-11 with Chapters 52-140. Gerhard finished the work in 1626-27 with Chapters 141-218. The substantial work provides the text of the Gospels in Greek and Latin with prolific commentary and exegesis. This is an oversized or heavy book, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. Harmoniae euangelicae, a pr??¼stantiss. theol. D.M. Chemnitio primum inchoatae.
