This chapter discusses how the Reformation movement prevailed in continental Europe. It states that Martin Luther took advantage of the Augsburg Interim to appeal to universities, the Holy Roman emperor, and a future council. It argues that despite massive difficulties, John Calvin used the doctrine of predestination as his weapon against the massive persecution of the Catholic Church.
