Institutes of the Christian Religion
"Such is pure and genuine religion, namely, confidence in God coupled with serious fear–fear, which both includes in it willing reverence, and brings along with it such legitimate worship as is prescribed by the law."
Institutes of the Christian Religion is considered John Calvin's magnum opus and a groundbreaking systematization of Protestant theology. The first edition was written in 1536 as a brief summary of Christian teaching, but because of the demand by 1559 – Institutes grew into the four-volume set that we know today. This classic translation by Henry Beveridge from Calvin's 1559 Latin edition is provided in its entirety here in one digital edition.
This digital edition has been made specifically for quick navigation and browsing. Additionally, it also features active footnotes, and a special introduction by John Murray.
