In 1539, Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto, Bishop of Carpentras, addressed a letter to the magistrates and electorate of Geneva, asking them to come back to the Roman Catholic religion. John Calvin spoke back to Sadoleto, protecting the adoption of the Protestant reforms. Sadoleto's letter and Calvin's answer represent essentially the most attention-grabbing exchanges of Roman Catholic/Protestant perspectives in the course of the Reformationand a good advent to the nice spiritual controversy of the 16th century. those statements are usually not in vacuo of a Roman Catholic and Protestant place. They have been drafted in the course of the non secular clash that used to be then dividing Europe. they usually mirror too the temperaments and private histories of the lads who wrote them. Sadoleto's letter has an irenic method, an emphasis at the cohesion and peace of the Church, hugely attribute of the Christian Humanism he represented. Calvin's answer is partly a private safeguard, an apologia professional vita sua, that documents his personal non secular adventure. And its taut, entire argument is attribute of the disciplined and logical brain of the writer of The Institutes of the Christian faith.
