Taking a quick stock of Lutheran gains by 1550 including the Icelandic Reformation. Yes, that Iceland. Hear about the bishop and his sons and how the gospel overcame them.

There is an important academy in Switzerland that hires Theodore Beza in 1549, but it is not the one you are thinking about. This academy is not Geneva, but its forerunner in Lausanne.
So, we end up in France to take a look at the state of religion in France at the close of the 1540’s and the close of Francis I reign. Henry II takes the throne and we see what lies ahead for the Reformed or Huguenots in France.
We take a look at the Stranger Church and are reminded of what it means to be a stranger and an exile here on earth.
We head to England for the new look Anglican church after the death of King Henry 8, and to see what effects the Augsburg Interim had on them.
The Lord’s Supper debate has consequences in Bern. Sulzer and his view vs. a new Haller and his view. Will Bern take the Consensus Tigurinus? And how this informs us in the practice of examining ministers today.
We take a closer look at the actual agreement in Tigurinus. And we stop to admire the differences between Bullinger and Calvin vs. Zwingli and Luther.
We take a look at Switzerland and see their continued debate with Luther on the sacraments.
We take a closer look at the Interim in the city of Strasbourg. We see the ending of the Reformed Church there, and yet not the end of the influence on Germany.
