Zurich Agreement

(Consensus Tigurinus). In 1546 Bullinger* sent to Calvin* a work on the sacraments. Calvin criticized it frankly, and the ensuing correspondence resulted in the first draft of the Consensus in November 1548, consisting of twenty-four propositions, which Calvin prepared and Bullinger annotated. The two met in Zurich in May 1549 to draw up the twenty-six articles on the sacraments which were published in 1551. The Consensus was received by Zurich, Geneva, Neuchatel, Basle, St. Gall, Schaffhausen, and the Grisons. It stated that in the Lord's Supper we partake of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit and the lifting of our souls to heaven. The sacramental grace, however, comes only to the elect.
