John Knox

Scottish, John Knox (1514 –1572) was, just like Luther, Bucer, Zwingli or Calvin, a theologian.He belonged to these men who during the XVI century, in different countries of Europe, tried to reform the Church from the inside. Because of the resistance of the authorities and the difficulties met, they found themselves leaders of religious movements or new churches.

John Knox spent a number of years in exile, in Germany and many years with Calvin, in Geneva to finish his studies. Talking about Geneva, JK says; The perfect school of Christ on earth since the Apostles….  The Church and the town are the most divinely reformed of the world. In that sense, he becomes the model of students in Geneva. Back in his country, he converted part of Scotland to the reformed faith and created a Church on the Presbyterian model found in Geneva.
