Calvin's Commentaries:

"After the reading of Scripture, which I strenuously inculcate, and more than any other ... I recommend that the Commentaries of Calvin be read ... For I affirm that in the interpretation of the Scriptures Calvin is incomparable, and that his Commentaries are more to be valued than anything that is handed down to us in the writings of the Fathers -- so much that I concede to him a certain spirit of prophecy in which he stands distinguished above others, above most, indeed, above all"
-Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609)

These electronic texts of Calvin's Commentaries were prepared through the labor of volunteers for the OnLine Bible project and the Christian Classics Ethereal Library in conjunction with the good folks at Ages Software. Much work in programming and editing was done by Skip Gaede. The commentaries contain Greek and Hebrew words which are encoded with fonts in this zip file. Proper rendition of the documents requires that these fonts be installed on your system. These files are in the public domain; use them for any purpose.
