    Calvinism (also called the Reformed tradition, Reformed Christianity, Reformed Protestantism, or the Reformed faith) is a major branch of Protestantism that follows the theological tradition and forms of Christian practice set down by John Calvin and other Reformation-era theologians.. Calvinists broke from the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century.. Calvinists differ from Lutherans. What strikes me about Calvin’s comments is his reference to God’s wrath and the call for universal humility and repentance—expressed particularly through fasting. In most of my reading of the Christian response to COVID that element seems almost entirely absent.
