About Johann Gerhard
Johann Gerhard (October 17, 1582–August 17, 1637) is remembered as the “Archtheologian of Lutheranism.” Gerhard was the most influential of the seventeenth-century Lutheran theologians. He decisively influenced Protestant theologians to study the evangelical (i.e., Gospel-centered) character of the pre-Reformation Christianity.
