Several years in the Protestant of Poland and Spain and the Cuban from France all thought refuge here in the city but then carried the gospel from here else way indeed this city has often been referred to as the Protestant Rome. This city publicly accepted the reform faith on the twenty first of May fifteenth thirty six and Pharrell was a key player in the Reformation it with power that would make this city famous somehow the Calvin and the international reform but for his influence beyond the boundaries of the city limits. The central idea that Palin developed without a consistent and coherent theological system could be derived and defended on the basis of the Bible. The great legacy. Not any doctrine but rather a demonstration of how the Bible could have the foundation. Understanding of Christian. In belief and structure. One of the key thing that Calvin did for the city with founding the University of the lever in fifty fifty nine Calvin have a cute way of influence over the notable men and women of that time in the sixteen hundred His influence spread to England Scotland France Germany it was far reaching in fact from this city over one thousand seven hundred preachers was sent out to France alone one thousand seven hundred and eighty five congregations were formed in the country a friend and the preachers that were trained here had to secretly make their way over to France they use an underground network system similar to the one used by the French during the resistance in World War two they would sneak across the border and they would make their way from house to house until they reach their place of work in the country a friend.
