      A glance at English history readily shows us that it was Calvinism which made Protestantism triumphant in that land. Many of the leading Protestants who fled to Geneva during the reign of Queen Mary afterward obtained high positions in the Church under Queen Elizabeth. an enemy who could stand its onset. In England, Scotland, Ireland. The history of religion in the Netherlands has been characterized by considerable diversity of religious thought and practice. From until the second half of the 20th century, the north and west were Calvinist and the southeast was in majority Catholic, with Muslims and other religions concentrated in ethnic neighborhoods in the cities. Since the s the Netherlands has become one of the.

      By , many publications had been published and the majority position of the Reformation was Lutheran. Calvinism mainly taking root in France, Netherlands, and Scotland and remaining until after the counter reformation of John C alvin and Presbyterianism in Britain.

Recommended." The Reader's ReviewCited by:   I began my career working on aspects of the European Reformation. My first book was a study of religious refugee communities in the sixteenth century, and since then I have published on the Dutch Revolt, and on the Reformation in Germany, France and England, as well as a general survey history of the sixteenth century.3/5(4).

Both politically and socially, feudal Scotland and the heavily-urbanized Netherlands were utter opposites. In Calvin's native France, the Reformed church had already lost its momentum when Calvin died in and struggled desperately for survival. Calvinism in Europe, Calvinism was the most dynamic and disruptive religious force of the later sixteenth century.

Its emergence on the international scene shattered the precarious equilibrium established in the first generation of the Reformation, and. Calvinism was immediately popular and was appealing across geographic and social boundaries. In France it was attractive primarily to the nobility and the urban upper classes, in Germany it found adherents among both burghers and princes, and in England and the Netherlands it made converts in every social group.

SCOTTISH CALVINISM: A DARK. REPRESSIVE FORCE. The Burns-Scott tradition of anti-Calvinism reasserted itself with all its old virulence in the work of Orcadian poet, Edwin Muir (), perhaps because he himself flirted with revivalist religion in his youth. France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Scotland, and England They are all very small countries in Europe.

They are all very small countries in Europe. Scotland and England united and became the United Kingdom (what was Scotland's business was now England's business) Calvinist ideas spread throughout Europe.

In France, they were called. Calvinism arrived in what is now the Netherlands in the s, as both the nobles and the common folk converted.

Under Phillip II, the Spanish government started harsh persecution campaigns against the Dutch and as a reaction to this persecution, the Calvinist population rebelled.

Although the character, course, and consequences of Calvinism have long been the subject of controversy, there is no doubt that the Calvinist movement left an enduring stamp on Europe, North America, and the rest of western civilization.

This book brings together the work of fourteen eminent historians who reexamine the ways in which Calvinism affected--and was affected by--the various. Truly, Calvinism is simply a nickname for biblical Christianity. It has stirred countries such as Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, England and America; the Reformation was a central and important turning-back point in history.

The Calvinistic Reformation in England is not limited to the span of Calvin’s life; by no means. Calvinism was known by various names in the different countries which it entered. On the continent of Europe it was called the Reformed Faith, and in France its followers were styled Huguenots; in Scotland it became Presbyterianism; and in England, Puritanism.

Its essential characteristics, however, remained the same wherever it was carried. From France and from Holland Calvinism soon spread to England and to Scotland.

It largely dominated the thinking of the Church of England into the seventeenth century, forming the core of Puritan thought which was transplanted to New England. Calvinism was the dominant form of Protestantism in France. After a period of struggle Calvinists were officially tolerated there.

Under the leadership of John Knox the Church of Scotland, which was Reformed, became the established church in Scotland. Reformed communities in France and the Netherlands had to fight for the right to worship.

This gave Calvinism a certain reputation for political radicalism. However, Calvinism also received the support of monarchs and princes in parts of the Holy Roman Empire, Central Europe, and the British Isles. As Professor Fruin justly remarks, “In Switzerland, in France, in the Netherlands, in Scotland and in England, and wherever Protestantism has had to establish itself at the point of the sword, it was Calvinism that gained the day.” However the fact is to be explained it is true that the Calvinists were the only fighting Protestants.

Neo-Calvinism, a form of Dutch Calvinism, is the movement initiated by the theologian and former Dutch prime minister Abraham Kuyper. No effort was spared by him to bring France into the closest relations with England and the Netherlands against Spain, and as a sign of the reconciliation that had been effected between the court and the Huguenots a marriage was arranged between Henry, the Calvinist King of Navarre and Margaret of Valois, the sister of Charles IX.

“Calvinism”, wrote the late Ian Henderson, “is a handy term which people use when they wish to disparage anything in Scottish religion” (Scotland: Kirk and People, p). He might have gone further. “Calvinism” is a handy term which people use whenever they wish to disparage  anything  in Scotland.As Professor Fruin justly remarks, ‘In Switzerland, in France, in the Netherlands, in Scotland and in England, and wherever Protestantism has had to establish itself at the point of the sword, it was Calvinism that gained the day.’ However the fact is to be explained it is true that the Calvinists were the only fighting Protestants.Calvin’s theology produced the Puritans in England, the Huguenots in France, the ‘Beggars’ in Holland, the Covenanters in Scotland, and the Pilgrim Fathers of New England, and was more or less directly responsible for the Scottish uprising, the revolt of the Netherlands, the French wars of religion, and the English Civil War.
