Guillaume Farel (1489-1565) was one of the key figures in the early Genevan reformation, but his legacy has become largely overshadowed by towering figure of Calvin. Seeking to contribute to a better understanding of the French-speaking reform movement, this volume offers a rich portrait of Farel's early thought by way of interpretive essays and translations of primary source texts. The translations of the second half of the volume are some of the first widely-accessible full-length translations of Farel's work into English.
