Calvin on the covenant

Main Article Content

M. Eugene Osterhaven


Among the many theological contributions that came to the church through the reformation of the sixteenth century was the doctrine or the covenant. Undeveloped in the preceding centuries, it made an early appearance in the Reformed Church in Zwingli and Bullinger who were driven to the subject by Anabaptists in and around Zurich. From them it passed to Calvin and other reformers, was further developed by the successors of the latter, and came to play a dominant role in much Reformed theology of the seventeenth and later centuries.
