In this article, the writer discusses Ulrich Zwingli as a religious reformer in Switzerland, who actually started out from inside the ranks of the Catholic Church, but gradually became a crusader against it. The writer points out that his radical policies showed that he was fearless in challenging the Church, and he even died for his beliefs in battle.
The writer discusses that despite his relatively short life, Zwingli left his mark on the reformation by his insistence on changes such as the removal of indulgences, the outlawing of idolatry, the relaxing of marriage laws and the wielding of political power. The writer concludes that the legacy of Ulrich Zwingli as a religious reformer and political leader lives on in statues in Zurich.
