Two works by leading Swiss reformers, the first by Rudolf Gwalther (1519-1586), and the second by Heinrich Bullinger (1504-1575). Gwalther was one of Bullinger’s students and was taken in the Bullinger residence in 1532 as he was an orphan. He followed in his foster fathers footsteps later as Antistes of the Zurich church after his death. Gwalther’s published commentaries are highly esteemed and rare, here his Latin homilies on the Acts of the Apostles containing 174 homilies. The second work contains Bullinger’s commentaries on the book of Revelation. Heinrich Bullinger preached on the book of Revelation in Zurich from 1554 until 1556. He was the only major reformer of the second generation who devoted a full-length work to this book.)
