John Calvin.1509-1564 A.D. French-born Swiss Protestant.theologian who broke with the Roman Catholic Church in 1533 and set forth the tenets of his beliefs, known today as Presbyterianism, in.Institutes of the Christian Religion, 1536; John Calvin established a system of beliefs based on what he found to be truths in the Bible, which taught the virtues of faith above good works and advanced the concept of equality, in which all Christians practice their beliefs with God's guidance, without the guidance of priests. Many European princes and citizens embraced the tenets he presented and his ideas spread to other countries and sparked major Protestant denominations in this era of Reformation. Calvin, John Wycliffe, Martin Luther and many others were instrumental in this historical turning point called the Reformation. Calvin also published a.Commentary on Romans in 1539, the first of his many commentaries on almost all books of the Bible. His sermons and manuscripts have been collected and most are available in English. Calvin drafted the new ordinances that the government modified and adopted as a constitution for Geneva, Switzerland governing both secular and sacred.matters. Calvin also supported development of a municipal school system for all children, with the Geneva Academy as the center of instruction for the very best students. While Calvin served Geneva, the city was almost constantly threatened by Catholic armies under Emanuel Philibert, duke of Savoy and other leaders. Calvin sought to improve the life of the city's citizens in many ways. He supported good hospitals, a proper sewage system, protective rails on upper stories to keep children from falling from tall buildings, special care for the poor and infirm and the introduction of new industries.....comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
