    It might be a good idea to see some of the sources from which those men drew, or to see things laid out in more detail. Therefore I would recommend:

    Francis Turretin, Institutes of Elenctic Theology
    Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica
    Augustine, Enchiridion

    That should keep you busy for a while.

    Christian ritual costs nothing and is worth nothing. True Christian religion costs all that we have and is worth everything.

    Aquinas is the glory of medieval Christendom. Anyway, whether directly or indirectly, he did exercise a massive influence on subsequent doctrinal discussions.

    In addition to some of the excellent suggestions above (e.g., slowly digesting Turretin), it might be good to add some more topical, or -- even more so -- exegetical works to your studies. Some good commentaries on scripture would be great. Or perhaps, for a real treat, you could try Thomas Goodwin's sermons on Ephesians. These will be a theology course all in themselves.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
