London : [Thomas Vautrollier for] wid. of Reginalde Wolffe, 1574. Third English ed. - 1574 Institutes of Christian Religion John Calvin English Huguenot Vautrollier Exceedingly Rare & Famous ENGLISH edition Norton “We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown.” ― John Calvin A rare, 16th-century English translation of John Calvin’s “Institutio Christianae relgionis”, or “Institutes of Christian Religion.” It is still widely read and considered highly influential in Western world Christianity. At its core, “Institutes” was intended to provide Christians inspiration in their living as well as being an introductory work to those new to the faith. It attacked those who opposed Calvin’s teachings, most notable Roman Catholicism. “Institutes” was immensely popular during the 16th-century and has since been held in the same respect as Augustine’s “City of God,” Aquinas’s “Summa Theologica,” Melanchthon’s “Loci Communes” and other important Christian doctrines. The final two added tables of this book are by Augustin Marlorat. During the late 16th-century, Thomas Vautrollier was one of the most highly thought-of printers in London. He is most known for printing Protestant theological works, such as ‘Institutes’. He also printed a “Book of Common Prayer” and the musical works of Catholic composers William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, the two most important English composers of the Renaissance.
