500 Jahre Orell Füssli: Von Zwinglis Bibel bis zum Banknotendruck Der Mann, der Zwinglis Bibel druckte, legte den Grundstein zum Zürcher Unternehmen und zu einer Erfolgsgeschichte. Und heute? Hat das Buch noch eine Zukunft? Bei Ivana Pribakovic diskutieren der Historiker Adrian Scherrer und Denise Zumbrunnen, Vorsitzende des Fachbereichs Buchhandel SBVV. Enjoy.
In 1528 Johannes Oecolampadius wrote his friend in Zurich the following (among other things) – Lutherum ferunt de verbo externo quedam in Iesaia contra nos scribere. Ibi iterum strennue se geret. Two things worth noting: first, Oecolampadius saw himself and Zwingli as so connected as friends and co-reformers that when Luther attacked one, he attacked both. And second, […]
In particular, his advice to Emser- “Transfer your attention from matters of divinity to medicine, that you may at least cure your gout, since [you are] naturally less fitted for sacred letters than for anything else. Farewell, and may God grant you a good mind.” That needs to be poster-ized.
Christ did not wish to make us idle by His holy offering, but, as St. John the Baptist preached, he wishes us to “bring forth fruits worthy of repentance.”
Which is why in a discussion of PDA this guy doesn’t drag in blessed Zwingli’s name. Z was way too classy for such nonsense. When it came to marriage, Luther and Calvin were as different as fire and ice. Luther, perhaps with a few beers under his belt, playfully addressed letters to: “my heartily beloved, […]
On 12 February 1527 Zwingli wrote his friend Conrad Sam. In that letter he remarks “Archetelem” ante annos quinque scripsi ad episcopum Constantiensem, quo rationem reddidi doctrinę. Liber adeo mendose fuit excusus, ut nihil debeas de eo esse sollicitus; misissem tamen, si ullus superfuisset. Sam should have read it before 1527… the wretch. Your friends […]
In various places Zwingli referred, nonchalantly, to Appenzell as a nest of Anabaptist activity. Though not necessarily incorrect, the accusation got him in a bit of hot water (even though he had never, frankly, accused the government of the town of any Anabaptist sympathies). So, in an attempt to clear things up, on 12 […]
The participants in the Zwingli Conference were invited to view the film tonight and we also had the opportunity of asking questions of and interacting with the director, Stefan Haupt. The cinematography was spectacular. The score was wonderful and not overpowering or overwhelming. The acting was superb. Worth noting in particular in the film’s acting are […]
One of the Baptists, Rudolph Thomann of Zollicon, examined by the Council of Zurich on February 7, 1525, thus described the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper as observed in the Zollicon gatherings: “He had eaten the Lord’s Supper with the old assistant (Brötli?), and him from Witikon (Röubli), and had invited them into […]
By Pascal Möhlmann, 2017. It’s quite brilliant.
Huge crowds have been out all across Switzerland to see the film. Zwei Wochen nach seinem Start in den Deutsschweizer Kinos lässt sich für Stefan Haupts Historienfilm Zwingli eine erfreuliche Zwischenbilanz ziehen. Exakt 10o’444 Zuschauer wollten den Film zwischen dem 17. und 31. Januar bereits sehen, schreibt der Filmverleih Ascot Elite am 1. Februar. Dies sei eine […]
Zürich hat es vergeigt, haben wir hier mal gejammert. Statt Zwingli als Superzürcher zu hypen, machte man hier: Abstellkammer auf, Zwingli rein, Kammer zu – soll schweigen, der alte Plapperi. So kam es, dass uns das Städtchen Wittenberg blamierte, indem es seinen Luther zum Reformationsjubiläum geschickt einsetzte, um Touristen zu ködern. Was Zürich im Direktvergleich […]
The third installment of a series of three has posted today on the Christian History Institute blog featuring Zwingli and his work on Jeremiah. Part One Part Two Part Three Enjoy them all.
This response to Groebner’s critique of the film is the third of three and though she agrees with Groebner on a few things she still finds the film good. Zwingli film 3, Groebner 0.
