  1. way off topic….any of you guys know who actually penned the “Five Solas” or did they just come out of the reformation? I am trying to do some historicity of the Five Solas but cannot find an actual author of them.

  2. Theopedia says that they “emerged during the Protestant Reformation”…

    I’m not sure who actually came up with them.

  3. Check this blog out, they think it’s fairly modern…

    Also, i’ve read that Luther originated the sola fide, if i remember right.

  4. Theologian, I used to believe Luther developed them as well. But I cannot find them in any of his substantial writings. I have come to the conclusion their a 20th century concept.

  5. All five together are probably 20th century, but Luther first penned the words “sola fide” in his writings from what i understand. Again, i may be remembering wrong. Some of the sola’s were used during the Reformation, but never as “the five solas” – they were individually used.

  6. Right, the ideas are peppered throughout the Reformers writings, and Luther did use the term sola fide, but like you said, we’re digging around for who actually came up with the notion of “the five solas”.

  7. I don’t doubt that the solas “came” from the reformation; we can all see that as obvious, just wondered who actually wrote them…
