Calvin's Oratory: John Calvin

John Calvin

Picture of John Calvin leaned against the wall in Calvin's Oratory (Auditoire de Calvin), Geneva, Switzerland. The simple but elegant 13th-century Gothic chapel became a Protestant lecture hall at the Reformation. Here the Scottish reformer John Knox preached from 1556 to 1559 and the French reformer John Calvin founded a Christian academy in 1559.
