The story of John Calvin

500 years and 19 days ago, John Calvin was born (10 July 1509).



Most people - including myself - don't know much about this man, even though he had a tremendous impact on history. But his life story is very interesting. I found the following two-part documentary on Calvin on the German TV channel "Deutsche Welle (DW-TV)". They are about 30 minutes each but well worth watching in my opinion.





There was also a very good article about John Calvin in The Times recently:
