By John Olin

In 1539, Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto, Bishop of Carpentras, addressed a letter to the magistrates and electorate of Geneva, asking them to come to the Roman Catholic religion. John Calvin spoke back to Sadoleto, protecting the adoption of the Protestant reforms. Sadoleto’s letter and Calvin’s answer represent essentially the most attention-grabbing exchanges of Roman Catholic/Protestant perspectives in the course of the Reformationand a good advent to the good spiritual controversy of the 16th century.

These statements should not in vacuo of a Roman Catholic and Protestant place. They have been drafted in the course of the spiritual clash that used to be then dividing Europe. and so they replicate too the temperaments and private histories of the lads who wrote them. Sadoleto’s letter has an irenic technique, an emphasis at the solidarity and peace of the Church, hugely attribute of the Christian Humanism he represented. Calvin’s answer is partly a private security, an apologia professional vita sua, that documents his personal spiritual event. And its taut, entire argument is attribute of the disciplined and logical brain of the writer of The Institutes of the Christian Religion.
