John Calvin is undoubtedly the best known figure of the Reformation -  in Western Europe and America, at any rate -- whose name has become virtually synonymous with the Reformed Tradition. Immensely gifted as a man of learning, if he had not been converted to the Reformation, Calvin would have probably become the pre-eminent scholar in France. In addition to his famous Institutes and complete Commentaries, Biblesoft offers nine volumes of Calvin's works, covering most of his essential writings: Three volumes of tracts and treatises, including a biography of Calvin, written by his successor at Geneva, Theodore Beza; Four volumes of Letters; One volume of Selected Sermon; and a ninth volume, which contains a special Appendix on "Calvin and the Persecution of Heretics", with an examination of the execution of Servetus and selected writings by Calvin's colleague-turned-opponent Sebastian Castellion.

Also included are two classic histories: D'Aubigne's History of the Reformation in Europe in the Time of Calvin; and History of the Rise of the Huguenots, by Henry M. Baird. John Calvin and the Psalmody of the Reformed Church explores a little-appreciated part of the Reformed Tradition: its rich musical-poetical heritage.
