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.
We have come to the Augsburg Interim and the war that led to it. The first of a couple looks at this. This time learning the danger of trusting in princes.
Juan Diaz was a Spanish Reformer. This is the story of his confession, but also of his murder by his own twin brother. A reminder of Luke 12:51-53 for us all.
No one expects the inquisition, but we take a look at how some Italian Reformers responded to the Inquisition. And we try to take a few lessons from this persecution that fell upon the Reformers of Italy.
We haven’t checked in on the Waldenses in some time, so we see what they are up to in 1540. And unsurprisingly it is trying not to be killed by the French Catholics. Find out about the Arret de Merindol to see the depth of the hatred toward Christ and his followers.
Slightly out of time order in history, but in order because of what we face currently. Take a look with me at the conversion of Theodore Beza, man of letters into a man of God.
