Artist's Description

An HDR shot of Zwingli, taken in Zurich. A personal shot.

Having studied the writings of Zwingli some years ago, I was drawn to the statue.

The Swiss like to do things by the book (when it suits) and Zwingli was no exception—he tried to reform the Catholic Church based on the Bible (when it suited).

Less well known that Luther and Calvin.

Good points:

He opposed the taxing of the people by the Church—although this still continues in Switzerland and the tithe/tax comes straight out of your wages.

He wrote some interesting theology—interesting if you are interested in that sort of thing.

Bad points:

Like all revolutionaries he set limits on the freedom they preach. His message was directed at those in power, when those without power took it seriously, he persecuted them.

“meet the new boss—same as the old boss”
