Author Bio

Martin Sallmann is professor of modern church history, history of theology, and confessions at the University of Bern.

Publisher Description

What legacies, still enduring today, have John Calvin and Calvinism given to the church and society in Europe and Northern America? An international group of essayists tackle that question in this volume honoring Calvin’s 500th birthday.

Each engage with a particular historical or theological topic, ranging from Emidio Campi and Christian Moser’s consideration of Calvin’s connection to the Swiss federation to Eric Fuch’s look at Calvin’s ethics to Mario Turchetti’s examination of Calvin’s contribution to modern democracy. The collected work provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction into Calvin’s life and thought, the history of Reformation worldwide, and his continuing relevance for ecclesial, social, and political questions of the day.

With this book the commissioning Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches seeks to contribute to the understanding, communication, and maintenance of the Protestant tradition and in turn, to strengthen the self-understanding and communion of Calvinist churches throughout the world.
