Swiss & Dutch Reformation

Categories :

Before we focus strictly on the Reformation by Luther and his co-workers in
Germany, we are going to look at the Reformation around the world. Much of
these were sparked by Luther, but they took on a life of their own.

This month, we look at one of the early enemies of Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and
his attempt to create a theocracy in Zurich. Zwingli’s mantle was quickly
picked up in Geneva by John Calvin, who has about as much influence over the
Reformation as Luther. Part of that influence included the creation of the
Dutch Reformed Church after Calvin’s death but ensconced in Calvin’s teaching.
