Amy Nelson Burnett's 'Debating the Sacraments' brings together the foundational disputes regarding the sacraments that laid the groundwork for the development of two Protestant traditions, Lutheran and Reformed, along with the critical question of authority, particularly biblical authority. She then places these disputes in the context of early print culture, showing how the ideas of the major reformers was filtered through the pamphlets of lesser known figures and translators, editors, and printers.
