Born into an upper-middle-class French family, John Calvin emerged as one of the most important and influential figures of the reformation. Indeed, some historians say, he is the most important. If Luther sounded the trumpet for reform, it was Calvin who orchestrated the score.
In this film we visit Geneva and its new modern Reformation Museum. We hear opinion on Calbin from England, Ireland, Scotland and America; and we consider how Calvin’s ministry changed the whole western world.
