Example text

By 1518 he was attacking the sale of indulgences and other abuses, and he read with excitement the early writings of Luther. At this time, the office of people’s priest (pastor and pulpit preacher) came open at Grossmünster Cathedral, the leading church in Zurich, and Zwingli was considered for the position. He admitted that he had been unfaithful to his vow of celibacy while at Einsiedeln (as well as at Glarus), but he promised to reform. His sin was hardly unique: his chief rival for the position had fathered six sons!

The movement spread rapidly in Switzerland, Germany, and Austria, in some cases arising spontaneously. Soon Anabaptists were also in Belgium, Holland, England, and Eastern Europe. Among the Czechs, some of the Hussites became Anabaptists. Many other leaders also emerged, including Hans Denck, Pilgram Marpeck, John Hut, Melchior Hofmann, Obbe and Dietrich Philips, Jacob Hutter, Michael Sattler, and Menno Simons. The earliest Anabaptist statement of faith was the Schleitheim Confession of 1527. At first, Anabaptist leaders thought Zwingli favored their views.

Using these criteria, he reduced the seven sacraments of medieval Catholicism to only two: baptism and the Eucharist. He did not oppose the others but did not regard them as sacraments. The Lutherans continued to practice confirmation and, of course, marriage and ordination. Luther strongly objected to penance with its requirement of works, but he was willing to allow confession to a priest (minister) as helpful but not essential. The Lutherans abandoned the administration of last rites (extreme unction).
