German term or phrase: Lehrnormen
From an article on protestantism and stem cells. "Im Gegenteil; seit der Reformation war es stets ein Kennzeichen des Protestantismus, sich vom Zentralismus der katho­lischen Lehrbildung und von einer autoritativen Verbindlichkeit vorgegebe­
ner Lehrnormen abzugrenzen."

Having trouble translating this sentence. The two words lehrnormen and lehrbildung are giving me trouble. I think lehrbildung may be doctrinal development?
Thanks :)

English translation:Lehrnormen: doctrinal norms. Lehrbildung: teaching
Explanation:
Sorry, neither of the passages quoted provide explicit equivalences, but I think these can be deduced from the context

Rauch’s Der Einfluss der stoischen Philosophie auf die Lehrbildung Tertullians,1890. Esser’s work is a careful and sympathetic exposition of the teaching of Tertullian on the soul, and is based upon the |p12 treatise De Anima, together with such reflections of the subject as appear in other writings (mainly De Carne Christi and De Resurrectione Carnis). Ludwig has given an ample exposition of the ethical teaching of Tertullian, while Rauch has shown the influence of Stoicism upon his psychology, theology, and ethics.
