The Calvin Quincentenary is an international, interdenominational and interdisciplinary celebration of the life and work of John Calvin, the great reformer who left such an indelible impression on the modern world.  If you plan to be in Geneva this summer, please accept this invitation to be part of one of the most significant gatherings of Calvinists in history!

 

The Anniversary Conferences include two international symposia; both to be held at sites in Geneva’s Old Town.

 

  • Running from July 6 through 9, 2009, the Tribute Conference offers stimulating lectures, current research, and well-researched analyses with leading Calvin scholars.  
  • The Commemorating Calvin Conference is scheduled from July 5 through 9, 2009.  For those wishing to appreciate the theology and spirituality of Calvin, this conference with leading ministers will be without parallel.
