Examine Luther's doctrinal hermeneutic. The Ecumenical Luther investigates Luther's definition of doctrine and its application in three key ecumenical encounters: Luther's 1523 discussion with the Unitas Fratrum; his engagement in the eucharistic controversies and the 1529 Marburg Colloquy; and his 1537 Smalcald Articles. Bucher argues that Luther gradually developed a doctrinal hermeneutic for determining whether a particular church teaching is an article of faith obligatory for all Christians. His doctrinal hermeneutic consisted of two canons (scriptural and evangelical) that served as interpretive lenses through which he judged whether a doctrine is necessary for salvation. Luther applied his doctrinal hermeneutic to ecumenical discussions to ascertain and ensure that only articles of faith would serve as a basis for unity.
