Thesis (Ph.D.)--Westminster Theological Seminary, 1989.
초록/해제  
This is a study of the Puritan piety which flowered in seventeenth-century England. This particular English piety manifested itself in the Puritan expressions of devotion to the person of Christ as the source of comfort and encouragement for the stricken consciences of Christians living in the context of England's struggles and hardships at the approach of and during the Civil War.
초록/해제  
In this study we focus our attention on the particular emphasis of four seventeenth-century Puritans (Richard Sibbes, John Cotton, Thomas Goodwin and John Owen) on union and communion with Christ, which became the avenue for their expression of Christian piety. We discover that affectionate communion with Christ was the hallmark of this piety.
초록/해제  
No piety or theology stands alone. It is vital, therefore, that we understand the sources of, and influence behind, this particular kind of piety. John Calvin's teaching on union and communion with Christ is therefore expounded first, because of his monumental influence on England and the Puritans. In doing this, we bear in mind that there is a controversy among scholars about the relationship between Calvin and the Puritans, on the one hand, and between Puritanism and Medieval piety, on the other, which this study also endeavors to clarify.
초록/해제  
We discover that the Puritans' devotion to Christ in their expression of communion with him did not depart from the basic teaching of Calvin; indeed the Puritans stood firmly on his theological foundation.
초록/해제  
Yet, differences are detected. For Calvin, union with Christ was emphasized more than communion with Christ, whereas for the Puritans the trend was reversed. The Eucharist which was the context in which Calvin developed communion with Christ was not the context used by the Puritans. Instead, they used the Song of Songs as a significant tool to express and develop their piety and devotion to Christ. In their interpretation of the Song of Songs, the Puritans were beyond Calvin. We discover that they sided with the traditional spiritual and allegorical interpretation found in Bernard of Clairvaux and elsewhere. This does not mean that the Puritans directly borrowed from Medieval piety. Rather, they stood firmly on Calvinistic and biblical theology, but went beyond the traditional of the Reformers to earlier church tradition to cultivate a piety which would meet the need of the time.
