Ulrich Zwingli – The Less Known but Highly Influential Swiss Reformer & Contemporary of Luther

Ulrich Zwingli was one of the most influential early Reformers. Born the same time as Luther, Zwingli rediscovered the “real” Gospel at a parallel time as Luther, but independent of him. Both men took different approaches to causing change that left a lasting impact for future generations. Although largely unknown by most Christians, Zwingli’s Reformation story has much that we can learn from today. What follows is my daughter’s High School paper on Zwingli that provides a quick overview of his life and ministry, including his unique approach to change and the positive as well as negative impacts his leadership had during the early critical years of the Reformation.
