The Servetus case by Frans Pieter Van Stam Summary

Cet ouvrage décrit le procès de Michel Servet, homme de talent, à Genève, qui se termina tragiquement le 27 octobre 1553 quand il fut brûlé vif sur le bûcher. Qui furent les responsables ? On pense d'abord à Calvin car il semblait contrôler Genève à cette époque-là. Les sources nous apprennent cependant que Calvin devait lutter tel un Troyen contre une faction féroce, une xénophobie envers les réfugiés, la ridiculisation de son ministère, ainsi que contre la colère et la peur du peuple. Le Conseil de Genève s’engagea sur un chemin délicat avec une consultation de ses alliés réformés (les villes-Etats de Bâle, Berne, Schaffhouse et Zürich). Michel Servet avait rejoint les Enfants de Genève, groupe de pression non négligeable. Cette décision s’avéra désastreuse. Mais comment l'Espagnol Michel Servet aurait-il pu connaître les tenants et aboutissants de tous ces courants ? Tout donne à penser que Michel Servet était davantage au courant qu’on avait pu l’imaginer.

Radicalism and Dissent in the World of Protestant Reform by Anorthe Kremers,VolkswagenStiftung,German Historical Institute Library,Bridget Heal Summary

This volume of essays explores the themes of radicalism and dissent within Protestantism. The comparisons highlight the contingent nature of particular settlements and narratives, and reveal the extent to which the definition of religious radicalism was dependent upon immediate context and show that radicalism and dissent were truly transnational phenomena. The historiography of the so-called radical reformation has been unduly shaped by the hostile categories imposed by mainstream or magisterial reformers during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This volume argues that scholars should adopt an open-ended understanding of evangelical reform, and recognize that the boundaries between radicalism and its opposite were not always firmly drawn. The distinction between the two is an inheritance of the Lutheran Reformation of the 1520s, which shaped not only the later course of the Reformation in the Holy Roman Empire but also attitudes towards and writings on religious dissent in the Netherlands and England. Radical critique is immanent within mainstream Protestantism, in a faith that emphasizes the power of the gospel with its unrelenting demands.

Sebastian Castellio, 1515-1563 by Hans R. Guggisberg,Bruce Gordon Summary

Sebastian Castellio, linguist, humanist and religious reformer, is one of the most remarkable figures of the Reformation. Attracted by Calvin's reforms, Castellio moved to Geneva in the 1540s, where he wrote his influential work on educational reform. Ironically, it was Castellio's work as a scholar in Geneva, which was to lead to his falling out with Calvin, and ultimately his forced departure from Geneva and his resettlement in Basle. Exiled from Geneva, Castellio soon attracted a circle of like-minded reformers who opposed the intolerant attitude of Calvin, exemplified by the execution of the heretical Michael Servetus. It is Castellio's residence in Basle, where he developed his 'liberal' humanist approach to religious toleration in opposition to Calvin's dogmatic othodoxy, which forms the core of this study. It explores what toleration meant and how both sides argued their case. Much attention is paid to Castellio's most important work 'On Heretics', in which he argues against the execution of those who err in the faith. By telling the fascinating tale of Castellio's life, this work illuminates the furious debate which he unleashed and how it marked a crucial stage in the development of Protestant thought.

Towards the Light by A. C. Grayling Summary

In Towards the Light, A.C. Grayling tells the story of the long and difficult battle for freedom in the West, from the Reformation to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, from the battle for the vote to the struggle for the right to freedom of conscience. As Grayling passionately affirms, it is a story - and a struggle - that continues to this day as those in power use the threat of terrorism in the 21st century to roll-back the liberties that so many have fought and died to win for us. Including an appendix of landmark documents, including the British and American Bills of Rights and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, the Bloomsbury Revelations edition also includes a new preface by the author reflecting on developments since the book's original publication.

Contra libellum Calvini by Sébastien Castellion Summary

Le Contra libellum Calvini constitue, avec le De haereticis, an sint persequendi, l’une des contributions les plus importantes de Sébastien Castellion à la controverse sur la tolérance, née à la suite de l’arrestation puis de l’exécution sur le bûcher pour cause d’hérésie de l’espagnol Michel Servet à Genève le 27 octobre 1553. Écrit au cours de l’été 1554 à Bâle, il se présente comme une réponse au Defensio orthodoxae fidei de Calvin. Il ne fut publié pour la première fois qu’en 1612.,L‘ouvrage est construit sous la forme d’un dialogue entre Calvin et "Vaticanus" (Castellion). Dans une querelle empreinte d’ironie et de mépris amer, l’humaniste bâlois se dévoile comme un orateur colérique et passionné qui s’en prend aux fautes et aux faiblesses de Calvin, à sa théologie et à ses occupations genevoises. C’est ici que l’on rencontre la célèbre phrase "tuer un homme, ce n’est pas défendre une doctrine, c’est tuer un homme".,L’édition critique d‘Uwe Plath inclut un long fragment autographe bâlois et s’attache à fournir un texte lisible et exempt de fautes, aussi proche que possible de l’original de Castellion.,

Defensio orthodoxae fidei de sacra Trinitate, contra prodigiosos errores Michaelis Serueti Hispani. Series IV. Scripta didactica et polemica by Joy Kleinstuber Summary

This text, written by Jean Calvin in defence of the execution of Michael Servetus in October 1553, provoked widespread controversy and reaction. It was published in Geneva by Robert Etienne in 1554. It is a composite text. Calvin reproduces many original documents alongside his own writing, including many of the Servetus trial documents. In these documents, amongst the pieces written by Calvin and the Genevan ministers, there is a substantial amount of writing from the pen of Servetus. This text was written in haste, during one of Calvin’s most difficult periods in Geneva. It is not well organised, with many different sections, very few of which are clearly marked. This edition has compared all the relevant parts of the text with the original trial documents in the Archives d’Etat in Geneva, noting all differences. As it is not an easy text to navigate, this edition gives a “plan” of the text at the start, and “signposts” the various parts throughout, making it much more accessible to the reader. This text – hastily put together and written under great pressure – allows us to hear the views of Servetus, as well as those of Calvin, and gives us a valuable insight into the complexities of a troubled situation.

The Atheist Milton by Michael E. Bryson Summary

Basing his contention on two different lines of argument, Michael Bryson posits that John Milton-possibly the most famous 'Christian' poet in English literary history-was, in fact, an atheist. First, based on his association with Arian ideas (denial of the doctrine of the Trinity), his argument for the de Deo theory of creation (which puts him in line with the materialism of Spinoza and Hobbes), and his Mortalist argument that the human soul dies with the human body, Bryson argues that Milton was an atheist by the commonly used definitions of the period. And second, as the poet who takes a reader from the presence of an imperious, monarchical God in Paradise Lost, to the internal-almost Gnostic-conception of God in Paradise Regained, to the absence of any God whatsoever in Samson Agonistes, Milton moves from a theist (with God) to something much more recognizable as a modern atheist position (without God) in his poetry. Among the author's goals in The Atheist Milton is to account for tensions over the idea of God which, in Bryson's view, go all the way back to Milton's earliest poetry. In this study, he argues such tensions are central to Milton's poetry-and to any attempt to understand that poetry on its own terms.

The Right to Heresy: Castellio Against Calvin by Stefan Zweig Summary

This Plunkett Lake Press eBook is produced by arrangement with Viking, an imprint of Penguin Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House LLC. Castellio is a book against zealots of every kind: against anything engendering “the destruction of this world’s divine manifoldness” and injuring the humane spirit. [...] Why could Castellio not maintain himself against Calvin? Stefan Zweig’s answers to these questions have permanent and tragic validity: it was because the masses pay tribute not only to the power of love, but also to that of hatred. Followers could always be found for political slogans that established “enmity and divisions, casting sinister flames of hatred against another religion, race or class.” [...] Those who sacrificed themselves for a future reconciliation of men, wrote Stefan Zweig in 1933, could not escape the fact that a torrent of fanaticism, “rising from the shoals of human instinct,” would burst all dams and inundate all. [...] Castellio, “a fly against an elephant,” rose in opposition to Calvin who had condemned Miguel Servet — better known as Servetus — a true fighter for spiritual freedom, to die at the stake. “To burn a man alive does not defend a doctrine, but kills a man,” said Castellio. It was an ever-recurring curse that ideologies degenerated into tyranny and brute force. Fanaticism, indifferent to the material from which it was ignited, wanted only to let the accumulated forces of hatred flame forth. And Zweig utters these words, six years before the outbreak of the Second World War: “At such apocalyptic turning points, when mass delusions determine universal destinies, the demon of war, bursting the chains of reason, hurls itself greedily and joyfully into the world.” [...] In describing a tragic contest — here that of conscience against force — Zweig is in his element. He illuminates the interesting figure of Servetus who had fought in his own fanatical-hysterical manner already as a youth. It is characteristic that Servetus was dubbed by his enemies “Jew,” “Turk,” and wicked “Spaniard.” [...] Zweig stressed the self-sacrificing way in which [Castellio] defended freedom of thought against Calvin, becoming the symbol of “Conscience against Force.” And he describes most touchingly the sorrow this genuine hero had to suffer. He shows, too, how free spirits may be endangered by the carelessness with which they choose their fellow-wanderers; whereas the one-sided totalitarians, protected by their rigidity, always hold a stone ready to fling at their enemies. (from Married to Stefan Zweigby Friderike Zweig) “One cannot but admire the ardent spirit with which Stefan Zweig has set out to annihilate the doctrines of exclusiveness and restriction in religion and in politics... the most spirited [book] and, in certain scholarly respects, the most important that Stefan Zweig has yet produced... From Stefan Zweig’s new book there emerges a new hero for a modern reading public: a true historic character rescued from near oblivion, and the first modern man who fought the good fight for humanity’s right to think its own thoughts and to say them. The battle has not yet been decided.” — Lloyd Eshleman,The New York Times, November 16, 1936

The Case for Nationalism by Rich Lowry Summary

It is one of our most honored clichés that America is an idea and not a nation. This is false. America is indisputably a nation, and one that desperately needs to protect its interests, its borders, and its identity. The Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump swept nationalism to the forefront of the political debate. This is a good thing. Nationalism is usually assumed to be a dirty word, but it is a foundation of democratic self-government and of international peace. National Review editor Rich Lowry refutes critics on left and the right, reclaiming the term “nationalism” from those who equate it with racism, militarism and fascism. He explains how nationalism is an American tradition, a thread that runs through such diverse leaders as Alexander Hamilton, Teddy Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Ronald Reagan. In The Case for Nationalism, Lowry explains how nationalism was central to the American Project. It fueled the American Revolution and the ratification of the Constitution. It preserved the country during the Civil War. It led to the expansion of the American nation’s territory and power, and eventually to our invaluable contribution to creating an international system of self-governing nations. It’s time to recover a healthy American nationalism, and especially a cultural nationalism that insists on the assimilation of immigrants and that protects our history, civic rituals and traditions, which are under constant threat. At a time in which our nation is plagued by self-doubt and self-criticism, The Case for Nationalism offers a path for America to regain its national self-confidence and achieve continued greatness.

Calvin by Bernard Cottret Summary

Pourquoi un Picard attacha-t-il son nom à la cité de Genève ? Comment un humaniste français devint-il l'une des plus hautes figures de la Réforme ? Calvin, homme d'Eglise, fut-il aussi homme d'Etat ? Vers 1532-1533, Calvin se rallie à la Réforme. Il publie bientôt la somme théologique du protestantisme réformé : l'Institution de la religion chrétienne. A Strasbourg comme à Genève, où il est retenu, le jeune auteur manifeste des qualités d'organisateur qui vont le faire passer à la postérité. Mais très vite, ses exigences de riguer suscitent l'opposition, l'hostilité et l'animosité. Car c'est un personnage contrasté que Jean Calvin. Il ne craint pas de polémiquer violemment - Servet, l'un de ses opposants, meurt sur le bûcher - et, dans le même temps, cherche à créer une catholicité évangélique, toujours actuelle. Ce Réformateur est essentiellement un conservateur qui manie aussi vivement la plus grande ouverture que la plus dure intoléance. Voilà donc un écrivain chrétien que son souci de restituer l'ancienne pureté de la foi place, paradoxalement, à l'aube du monde moderne et des idées d'homme. Bernard Cottret dirige le département Lettres et Langues à l'université de Versailles-Saint-Quentin.Il est l'auteur de plusieurs ouvrages sur le protestanisme français, l'histoire d'Angleterre ou la vie politique et religieuse des siècles passés : Terre d'exil; Le Christ des lumières, Cromwell, Histoire des îles Britanniques, XVI-XVIIIè siècles...
