This is the first and most detailed study to focus exclusively on the period of Calvin’s Life up to the first edition of his celebrated Institutes of the Christian Religion. Ganoczy firmly roots this biography in the tumultuous events of the day, and formative influences on Calvin’s thought.
“a historian thoroughly acquainted with both the primary and secondary literature, Ganoczy vividly re-creates the theological atmosphere of the Sixteenth Century”.
