You will need Flash Player to see the attached presentation. We look at Ulric Zwingli, seeing him in his time and tracing his development and his influence in the life of Switzerland. We see how complex the land of Switzerland was in terms of its constitution as a confederacy of cantons, the influences of the surrounding countries, the wars in which the Swiss engaged as mercenaries. Overlaying all of this, we see the different languages that were spoken in different regions of the land. We see that Zwingli was a great reformer but that he did not sufficiently distinguish and separate church and state and ultimately gave himself to political activities, dying on the battle field in 1531.
