The position paper for this symposium provides an instructive account of the false antitheses and destructive fragmentation that have beset morality and ethics in our ‘late modern’ societies. We plenary speakers have been invited to contribute broader philosophical and historical perspectives to the tasks of diagnosing and overcoming these antitheses and this fragmentation. I would like, therefore, to bring to these diagnostic and constructive tasks the theoretical resources of the English Reformation which, although doctrinal and theological rather than philosophical (as independently conceived), are, in my view, germane to any coherent Christian ethical undertaking. While I shall concentrate on the constructive ethical contribution of English Reformation theology, I would like to offer a brief indication of its diagnostic relevance, by pointing to certain resemblances (possibly even continuities) between the present ethos and the ethos to which the 16th century reformers were responding, with its late medieval and renaissance strands.
