About the Author
John Calvin (1509-64), the French theologian and pastor of Geneva, was one of the principal 16th-century Reformers.
Calvin was born on 10 July 1509, in Noyon, about sixty miles north-east of Paris. His father Gérard Cauvin held legal office in the service of the bishops of Noyon, and wanted his son to enter the church. He used his influence to obtain a chaplaincy at Noyon Cathedral when Calvin was 11, the income helping to fund his education. The young man was privately tutored, before being sent to Paris at the age of 14 to study theology at the University. He first attended the Collège de la Marche, then the Collège de Montaigu, where he received the equivalent of his Master of Arts in 1528 at the unusually young age of 17. Some of Calvin s instruction was given by the brilliant Latin scholar Mathurin Cordier, and he obtained a first-class education.
