Zwingli’s Life and Ministry

(p.12) 2 Zwingli’s Life and Ministry

W. P. Stephens

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a biography in which Zwingli's thought is set in the context of his life and work and in the context of his development in the time both before and after he became a reformer. It illustrates that his thought is not separated from his life and work, but is his response both to the word of God on the one hand and to the events and people he was dealing on the other. In subjects such as baptism, his theology was developed only because he faced challenges to which he had to respond and without it, it is likely that he would have written little or nothing on certain subjects. Three important influences on his later work as a reformer were apparent: patriotism, scholasticism, and humanism.

Keywords:   biography, life, ministry, baptism, patriotism, scholastism, humanism
