John Calvin as pedagogue
Calvin was not only a theologian, but a competent pedagogue as well. He set a high value on education, and promoted it actively, but never systematically committed his views on it to paper. His educational views were not purely educational, but connected to a particular theological view. It is nevertheless possible to construct the broad general principles upon which his educational philosophy is based, from three sources: these are data on his educational activities in Geneva, the educational opinions that appeared in his writings, and the implications of his theological views for education.
