Ubiquitarianism

This doctrine, derived by Luther from a variety of patristic and medieval sources, asserts that Christ is present in His human nature everywhere and at all times. The view was developed by the Reformer in two important works of 1527 and 1528 to uphold his belief in the Real Presence in the Eucharist.* Calvin and Melanchthon both recoiled from the doctrine, and Zwingli flatly denied it. It was hotly debated by Lutheran scholars of the Swabian and Saxon schools till the intellectual trends of the later seventeenth century caused christological argument to recede into the background.
