At the Feet of Giants

A man gazes up at the imposing statues of Genevan reformers on the Mur de la Reformation (1909-17). From left to right, they are: Guillaume Farel, the first to preach the Reformation in Geneva; John Calvin, leader of the Reformation movement and spiritual father of Geneva; Theodore Beza, Calvin's successor; and John Knox, a Scottish preacher, friend of Calvin, and founder of Scottish Presbyterianism.
