Five hundred years ago John Calvin was born in the provincial city of Noyon in France. Few theologians have influenced the world at large more than Calvin. His ideas and example shaped church life, scientific endeavour, the study of the Bible, and the organisation of the modern state. His influential ministry in Geneva, his extraordinary Institutes of the Christian Religion, and the widespread ministry of those who graduated from the Academy he founded, combined to ensure that his ideas were spread throughout Europe and beyond.

On this important anniversary, international and interstate guests joined with the Moore College faculty to enter into a fresh conversation with this influential Swiss Reformer.
