John Calvin - Sculpture (table top size)


With the death of King Henry VIII and the ascension of Mary (Bloody Mary), the Protestant Reformation experienced its greatest opposition to date. The inquisitions of Rome had scattered many from France, from Spain and from England. Ultimately, many found refuge among fellow Reformers in Geneva. Here, the work of William Whittingham and his compatriots would bring about the 1557 New Testament, soon followed by the Old Testament translation, which would be the 1560 Geneva. Reformers who would lead in this project: John Calvin, John Knox, Huldrych Zwingli , and others, formed a Protestant coalition that would soon find refuge again in England.
