Chapter Summary

Farel's personality did not shun dramatic action, but managed to guarantee an audience by it. Though he repelled some people with his words and actions (among them Erasmus),others were attracted by it, and Farel most probably was willing to encourage this. In this chapter, Farel is introduced, not as the theologian, but as the flamboyant herald of Reformed belief. The following selection of 19 out of many more events establishes an impression of the controversies and tumults in which Farel became involved. The extent of these tumultuous events, mostly iniciated by Farel, required an accumulation of examples. Farel's piety, - on the other hand - , although in itself a many faceted phenomenon, may be illustrated by one single feature in his writing.
