Abstract

This article presents an evaluation of Martin Luther’s reformatory theology from the point of view of orthodox theology. To this day there are only a few orthodox theologians who have undertaken systematic analyzes of Luther’s theology. Although their attitude to Lutheran theology was critical, they underlined that Martin Luther did not want to form a new denomination. They viewed Martin Luther’s Reformation not as a renewal of ecclesial life, but as an innovation within Christianity. The ecumenical dialogues have brought about a change in the understanding of Lutheran theology, in the sense that there are some orthodox theologians who have worked out convergent Lutheran doctrines with orthodox theology.
