Calvinism: Free Ebook
The History Of Calvin and Calvinism: The doctrine that we today call Calvinism was formulated by John Calvin who produced his Systematic Theology (known as Institutes of the Christian Religion) in 1536. Since the Protestant Reformation had started just in 1534, Calvin lived and propagated his ideas at the very start of the Protestant Reformation and that is one reason why he became very influential in spite of his errors.
The new believers did not have much else to read during those days except Roman Catholic books. There were very few Protestant writers, and those who wrote massive volumes at the beginning were read with great interest by the new believers. What is more, most people had not seen a Bible, let alone a Protestant book on theology. Thus they were not in a position to assess the doctrines and influence of Calvin and Calvinism, and thus Calvinism became all-pervasive before most people could realize what was happening.
