Written as an introductory textbook on the Protestant creed for those with some previous knowledge of theology, John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion was first published in Latin in 1536. The text covers theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty. It vigorously attacked the teachings of those Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism. The Institution Of Christian Religion overshadowed earlier Protestant theologies and is regarded as a classic in theology on the level of Augustine's The City of God, and Aquinas's Summa Theologica.
