There’s a piece today on Calvin in the NYT. If you get to Geneva, be sure to visit the Museum of the Reformation, not far from St Pierre. It’s a fair piece and gives a sense of the ambivalence of the on the part of the citizens of Geneva. They happily celebrated Rousseau’s 300th but they’re a little more reluctant to celebrate Calvin’s 500th. This summer there was a large public display in Le Parc des Bastions but apparently the city council didn’t want to spend money on Calvin. That’s fitting. The City Council is still busting Calvin’s chops 500 years later.
