Monument Heinrich Bullinger – a Swiss Reformer and Link with Europe
The Swiss theologian Heinrich Bullinger reinforced the Reformation in Zurich and beyond.
Heinrich Bullinger, one of the leading Protestant theologians of the 16th century, was responsible for reinforcing and sustaining the Reformation in Zurich. He succeeded Huldrych Zwingli at the Grossmünster church at the age of 27 and was definitely his equal in terms of passionate preaching.
Bullinger was famous for his hospitality and exchanged correspondence across Europe – which led to him publishing a kind of newspaper about political events.
His sculpture can be found on the southern outside wall of the Grossmünster church.
