After two years of pastoring in Geneva, anti-Protestant officials forced Calvin to leave once again. This time he continued to Strasbourg, old Germany his initial destination. Here he became the statesman of a Church for French exiles, however, remained to assist the Reformation action in Geneva. This further popularised Calvinism and the "Institutes" across Europe.
You are exiled for heresy to Strasbourg, Old Germany
In 1541 John Calvin was requested back to Geneva to lead the Protestant Church. In his return, Calvin used Evangelical policies to establish a new ecclesiastical government and alter the liturgy reflecting his Institutes. In 1555 he was granted complete supremacy as the political and spiritual leader of Geneva.
What should I call French followers of Calvinism? I know Huguenots.
Calvin's Institutes was primarily about God's sovereignty, and that all humans are sinful and only by the initiative of God can they experience salvation. Calvinism spread throughout Europe and is a doctrine in many Protestant Churchs after his death on May 27, 1564.
