KNT3501 Seminar on John Calvin Syllabus

University of Toronto, Fall 2016

About This Course

This course is a close critical reading of the English text of Calvin’s Institutio Christianae religionis of 1559. We begin by situating Calvin’s theology in the historical and theological context of the 16th century Reformation before turning to a careful examination of the Institutes’ major doctrinal themes and their significance both for Calvin’s context and the subsequent history of Protestant theology.
