Calvin and Servetus

 

            In this year’s celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, few will want to draw attention to the interaction of John Calvin and Michael Servetus, except by way of apology for the Genevan reformer’s part in his condemnation and execution for heresy.

If we are to honor our fathers, we should at least give Calvin a fair hearing.
