Oecolampad



"Johannes Oecolampadius or Oecolampad (1482–24 November 1531) was a German Reformed theologian religious reformer from the Electorate of the Palatinate. He worked with Erasmus and Zwingli, and also influenced a later generation of Protestants, including Heinrich Bullinger and John Calvin. Theologically he was considered to be close to Zwingli, with whom he shared a friendly attitude towards Mary and Marian veneration." ~ Wikipedia

  1. I like how his statue has different colors. He was a good influence.

  2. Admittedly, I don't know him, but then religious history is not my area.
