This is an examination of the reception of Calvin's thought in the works of seventeenth century Calvinist theologians. The chapter focuses on four ways in which Calvin's work was received: (1) the identity of Calvin and the character of his work, (2) referencing Calvin's Institutes and Commentaries, (3) theological uses of Calvin's work‐positive and polemical, (4) citation and use of Calvin by Herman Witsius and François Turrettini. The variety of ways in which Calvin's theology was cited and used shows that he was generally respected but not always followed, as theological Calvinism assumed a wide variety of shapes.

Keywords:   Calvin, seventeenth-century Calvinist theology, reception, Herman Witsius, François Turrettini, The Institutes of Christian Religion, biblical exegesis
