For Huldrych Zwingli (1484-1531), the Word was both inspiration and instrument in his treatment of God and humankind. The exhibition is dedicate to the Reformation and the power of the word. Huldrych Zwingli was not just a Reformer. He was also a preacher, warrior, writer, translator and publicist. The spoken and written words of the Reformation are the focus of the exhibition, in perspective of the historial events in Zurich and Switzerland between 1519 and 1531.
