He is most famous for his timeless and massive systematic theology titled: "Institutes of Elenctic Theology" "IET" henceforth. I began reading this Systematic Theology ST from now on after reading Michael Horton's recent and awesome systematic theology that I read earlier this year titled: " The Christian Faith. The book has an anecdote about how Turretin's latin original was in the library for students at Princeton to look up the footenotes in Hodge's ST. Most arguments are stated against a specific opponent who represents that belief where Turretin either "affirms", "denies", or clarifies the truth doctrine.
