Today we went to the church at which Calvin preached for his time here in Geneva, known as St. Peter's Cathedral (in English). The place is amazing and beautiful. Pictures are below. I'll keep the commentary to a minimum and mostly just label the pictures. Among them, however, are images of Calvin's chair, the church, and much inside the church.
|St Peter's Cathedral, the church at which Calvin preached for years.|
|The lectern from which the Word of the Lord is proclaimed and perhaps was in Calvin's era also.|
|A lectern. Probably from which Calvin preached, or at least the one from which the preacher today preaches.|
|ME BESIDE CALVIN'S CHAIR|
|Yay! The Institutes got a shout out!|
|This is the entire wall from the left side looking all the way down.|
We also went to the Reformation museum where pictures were not technically allowed. I absolutely did not take any pictures at all. So definitely don't ask to see the pictures that I didn't take because I totally don't have any to show you. But that's why there's really no cool pictures of things like a first edition of Calvin's Institutes, a first edition of Turretin's Institutes, etc. etc. (The great Marburger did get a shout out in the Museum though! And there was a first edition of Barth's book on Bultmann's theology where he shows he had no idea what Bultmann was saying.)
In any case, I hope it was interesting for you to see the pics!
