John Calvin (10 July 1509 – 27 May 1564) was a French theologian, pastor and reformer in Geneva during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism, aspects of which include the doctrines of predestination and of the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation, in which doctrines Calvin was influenced by and elaborated upon the Augustinian and other Christian traditions. Various Congregational, Reformed and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as the chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world. Calvin's influence upon the world cannot be overstated, as many great theologians have admired and developed Calvin's theology including numerous reformed theologians including François Turrettini, Moses Amyraut, Jacobus Arminius, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Charles Hodge, Charles Spurgeon, Karl Barth, Jürgen Moltmann, Thomas F. Torrance etc, and innumerable reformed church denominations within Presbyterianism and others in the Reformed tradition. (Source)
