John Calvin (1509-1564) was a French reformer and theologian. His theological insight, exegetical skill, knowledge of languages, and his clear style made him the most influential writer among the reformers. His Institutes of the Christian Religion remains an important source of theological study and reflection.
Jules Bonnet (1820-1892) was a French Protestant layman. He was educated as a lawyer but became a professor in the University of France and gained recognition with his works on the history of the Reformation. He was also secretary of the 'Societe d'Histoire du Protestantisme Francais' and editor of its publications.
