    • Huldrych Zwingli

      Huldrych or Ulrich Ulricht Zwingli 1 January 1484 11 October 1531 was a leader of the Reformation in Switzerland Born during a time of emerging Swiss patriotism and increasing criticism of the Swiss mercenary system, he attended the University of Vienna and the University of Basel, a scholarly centre of humanism He continued his studies while he served as a pastor in Glarus and later in Einsiedeln, where he was influenced by the writings of Erasmus.In 1518, Zwingli became the pastor of the Grossm nster in Zurich where he began to preach ideas on reforming the Catholic Church In his first public controversy in 1522, he attacked the custom of fasting during Lent In his publications, he noted corruption in the ecclesiastical hierarchy, promoted clerical marriage, and attacked the use of images in places of worship In 1525, Zwingli introduced a new communion liturgy to replace the mass Zwingli also clashed with the Anabaptists, which resulted in their persecution.The Reformation spread to other parts of the Swiss Confederation, but several cantons resisted, preferring to remain Catholic Zwingli formed an alliance of Reformed cantons which divided the Confederation along religious lines In 1529, a war between the two sides was averted at the last moment Meanwhile, Zwingli s ideas came to the attention of Martin Luther and other reformers They met at the Marburg Colloquy and although they agreed on many points of doctrine, they could not reach an accord on the doctrine of the presence of Christ in the eucharist In 1531 Zwingli s alliance applied an unsuccessful food blockade on the Catholic cantons The cantons responded with an attack at a moment when Zurich was badly prepared Zwingli was killed in battle at the age of 47 His legacy lives on in the confessions, liturgy, and church orders of the Reformed churches of today.

    • Serviceable but not exceptional edition and translation of one of Zwingli s most important works The introduction is almost entirely just a summary of the text The translation was usually fine but sometimes left me scratching my head Notes were helpful but could have been much copious.
