Toward the Recovery of the Historical Calvin

(p.97) VII Toward the Recovery of the Historical Calvin
The Two Reformations

Heiko A. Oberman

Yale University Press

This chapter explores efforts to recover the actual historical John Calvin. Most historians have painted Calvin in a distorted way, and even his detractors painted him in a way that is favorable to them. The chapter argues that in order to redraw the map of the Reformation-era Europe, there is a need for uncovering the historical Calvin. It notes Gottfried W. Locher's opening of the first Calvin Research Progress on September 16, 1974, which aimed to create a research program that will uncover the theology of Calvin.
