In 1539, Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto, Bishop of Carpentras, addressed a letter to the magistrates and voters of Geneva, asking them to come back to the Roman Catholic religion. John Calvin responded to Sadoleto, protecting the adoption of the Protestant reforms. Sadoleto’s letter and Calvin’s answer represent some of the most fascinating exchanges of Roman Catholic/Protestant perspectives throughout the Reformationand a superb advent to the nice non secular controversy of the 16th century.

These statements aren't in vacuo of a Roman Catholic and Protestant place. They have been drafted in the middle of the spiritual clash that was once then dividing Europe. they usually mirror too the temperaments and private histories of the lads who wrote them. Sadoleto’s letter has an irenic procedure, 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 seasoned vita sua, that files his personal spiritual adventure. And its taut, entire argument is attribute of the disciplined and logical brain of the writer of The Institutes of the Christian Religion.
