Approaches to Post-Reformation Protestantism 19 orthodox colleagues and followers—Johannes Hoornbeeck, Brakel, Mastricht, and Simon Oomius—serve as significant examples of the interrelationship of scholastic orthodoxy with piety and spirituality in the seventeenth century, a point all too often ignored in the older scholarship. The next two essays (chapters 7 and 8)—" Vera Philosophia cum Sacra Theologia nusqua pugnat: Keckermann on Philosophy, Theology, and the Problem of Double Truth"36 and "Scholasticism Protestant and Catholic: Francis Turretin on the Object and Principles of Theology"37—examine presuppositional questions concerning the relationship of theology to philosophy and the nature of the theological task.

So, too, can the doctrine of the sacraments be identified in two forms, occupying opposite sides of the Reformed spectrum: Calvin's identification of the sacraments as means and instruments of grace and Bullinger's teaching of a conjoint and parallel action of grace with the administration of the sacraments.
