This program covers the 16th century Swiss Reformation, its key centers of Zurich and Geneva, and its central leaders, Zwingli and Calvin—two theologians who led tumultuous lives. Zwingli questioned major teachings of the church and instituted sweeping reforms. He sought to apply the Word of God for the transformation of civic and church life.
