Happy Birthday Calvin

Jean Cauvin, who we know as John Calvin, was born on this day in 1509 – 500 years ago today.

We Protestants owe a lot to Calvin for his work as a reformer and his contributions to the development of Christian theology. His ideas have also been credited with promoting democracy and capitalism in the west. Not bad for a Frenchman!
