John Calvin, a prominent French theologian and reformer, is born in Noyon, France. He later becomes known for his teachings and writings on Protestantism, shaping the belief system known as Calvinism.
John Calvin plays a significant role in transforming Geneva, Switzerland into a model Protestant city. He establishes a theocratic government based on his interpretation of the Bible, implementing strict moral and religious laws and establishing a system of church governance.
In 1560, John Calvin publishes his seminal work, 'Institutes of the Christian Religion.' This comprehensive theological treatise outlines the key doctrines of Calvinism, exploring topics such as the sovereignty of God, predestination, and the role of the church. The book quickly gains widespread recognition and becomes a foundational text of Reformed theology.
John Calvin passes away on May 27, 1564, in Geneva. Despite facing controversies and opposition during his lifetime, Calvin's ideas continue to shape Protestant theology and have a lasting impact on Western religious thought. The term 'Calvin' becomes associated with his teachings and the broader system of beliefs known as Calvinism.
