This article explores the variety of understandings of the principle of the analogy of faith within the writings of Luther and Calvin, and the variety of uses which they make of it.

It argues that a basic coherence can be found within the varied uses that the Reformers make of the principle of the analogy of faith, deriving from an understanding of Scripture, Christian doctrine and the Christian life which defies easy distinctions between fides quae and fides qua.
