Anti-Calvin Online

Anti-Calvin Online

Editor: Malcolm Walsby, University of St. Andrews

During the sixteenth century Protestant authors had grasped the importance of winning over the souls and minds of the French people from the outset and the production of Genevan presses was therefore mainly in French. This unique selection of writings reflects the Catholic response to Calvinism, with works attacking the precepts of Calvinism and those defending the Catholic doctrine against condemnations by Calvinists.
