[1] Amandus Polanus (1561-1610) was a German Reformed theologian, and an important figure in the early development of Reformed Scholasticism. He served as Professor of Old Testament at Basel (1596-1610). [2] Joachim of Fiore (c. 1135-1202) was an Italian theologian, and founder and Abbot of a Cisterician Abbey at Fore. He is famous for his apocalyptic thought, postulating three great ages: the Age of the Father (the Old Testament period), characterized by the obedience of man to commandments; the Age of the Son (the New Testament period until 1260), characterized by adoption; the Age of the Holy Spirit, characterized by love, in which the ecclesiastical polity would no longer be necessary. In addition to his works on Revelation, he also wrote a Scripture harmony and a commentary on the Gospels. Commentaries on Isaiah and Jeremiah are falsely ascribed to him.
