A Mere Ecclesiology: The Reformation, Evangelicals, and the Notae Ecclesiae

This paper examines Reformation and later Evangelical understanding of the Nicene description of the church as one, holy, catholic, and apostolic as the notae ecclesiae, or marks of the church. Developed as a reforming response to medieval Roman Catholic sacramentalism, this paper traces the development of a distinct evangelical ecclesial ontology that the author defines as a mere ecclesiology centered on a new understanding of the marks of the church.
