This chapter examines the state of the question with respect to Calvin studies as regards the issue of his prophetic awareness, through an analysis of existing scholarship on the topic. It is suggests that, though much of the (small amount of) work done on the topic is very good, none of it has come to grips with a fundamental problem inherent in Calvin’s discussion of prophecy; namely, the fact that his corpus has conflicting views of prophecy within it. It employs this as a starting point for investigation; in order to understand what is happening, this study needs to begin by looking at the medieval and Reformation thought on prophecy.
