'Calvin: A Biography'

Review by Tony Lane, London School of Theology, of Calvin: A Biography, by Bernard Cottret, at Themelios.

"Cottret’s Calvin is one whose ideas evolved over time, though recognition of this fact is not quite as lacking in previous biographies as the dust jacket suggests. Thus the author emphasises the influence upon Calvin of his time in Strasbourg, commenting that it was there that Calvin became a Calvinist (108)."

See Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Great Books of the Western World (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 30.
