"description": "LibriVox recording of The Reformation Collection Volume 1 by Various.
Read in English by InTheDesert

This volume of the Reformation collection begins with a summary of
Protestant belief in the form of the Belgic Confession and John Calvin's
'cover letter' to Francis I of France requesting that he read Calvin's
Institutes of the Christian Religion to understand the Protestant
doctrine from its source rather than secondhand. 100 aphorisms
summarising the contents of the Institutes follow as well as some
instructions given by Thomas Cranmer showing the effect of the
Reformation for clergy and parishes, as does a short protestation from
the reformer William Tyndale expressing the Reformation methodology
privileging the Bible as the source of doctrine and practice. It
continues with several debates where both sides have been recorded:
Cardinal Sadoleto's measured letter to Geneva and Calvin's reply, Pope
Paul III's letter to emperor Charles V and Calvin's comments, with
outrage expressed on both sides, followed by Thomas Cranmer's writings
on the relationship between the Papacy and the state. The leads
naturally into some writings from the English Reformation where King
Henry VIII required the Pope to be "driven out of England" and William
Turner, botanist turned theologian, considered the command incompletely
executed. There follow writings on the subject of the sacraments,
ceremonies and attire which were a key area of dispute in the
Reformation period. Afterwards come several expressions of Reformed
piety in the form of prayers and a simple catechism for children. (Summary by InTheDesert)
