Today With Zwingli

It was on this date in 1526 that Zwingli published his Ein klare underrichtung vom nachtmal Christi durch Huldrychen Zuingli tütsch (als vormal nie) umb der einvaltigen willen, damit sy mit niemans spytzfündigheit hindergangen mögind werden, beschriben.

They did like the long titles back then…  At any rate, this book appeared three years before the famed Marburg colloquy.  In it Zwingli sets the tone for the debate between himself and Luther that would culminate in that disastrous meeting.

After working through the various parts of his views, Zwingli concludes with a little poem, for the laity-

Sag mir an, ob du ‘s weist,
Das vatter, sun und geist,
Fleisch und bluot, brot und wyn
Als sampt ein got mög sin?
