Signs series: Calvin Square plaque

About the series


The square in the center of Budapest is named after the French theologian Jean Calvin (1509-1564), the father of Calvinism (Kálvin tér). Calvin founded Calvinism - Reformed Christianity, a stream of Protestant Christianity based on God’s involvement in all areas of life. The square is named after Calvin because of the church located in the area of the square.

The plaques were placed in 2017 to mark the 500th anniversary of the publication of the Principles by Martin Luther.
