Show Summary Details


Peter Martyr Vermigli was one of the most important Italian theologians to join the Reformed movement, teaching in Strasbourg, Oxford, and Zurich. He was a fine Hebraist and a productive commentator on the Bible. He became a defender of a eucharistic theology associated with Reformed theologians like John Calvin. These theologians agreed with Huldrych Zwingli that the risen humanity of Christ was at the right hand of the Father but differed with him over the positive role played by the elements of bread and wine. Vermigli and Calvin agreed with Luther that the consecrated bread and wine were real means of grace.
