When Calvin appeared as one of the reformers of his time, he was accused of being a schismatic and destroyer of the unity of the church that was ruled by the pope. This article intends to demonstrate that Calvin made the greatest effort to participate in several ecumenical meetings between 1540 and 1556 and played a role in resolving the conflicts that threatened church unity and caused separation. Calvin and all the reformers sincerely believed in the existence of one church. He matched word with action and geared his idealism to the situation as it existed. Therefore, it is true to claim that Calvin had a strong ecumenical spirit.
