Fundamental on Zwingli's understanding of the eucharist is that it is a sign and that its nature is different from what it signifies. This applies both to the sacrifice of Christ and to the body of Christ. The eucharist is a memorial of the sacrifice, not the sacrifice itself; it is a sign of the body of Christ, not the body itself. Zwingli attacked the bodily of eating of the body of Christ on two grounds: faith and scripture. He argued that salvation was promised to faith and not to bread. For him, the subject of the eucharist is the death of Christ, and not the eating of the body.
