His life's work made hime a household name: in just a few years, the Zurich reformer Huldrych Zwingli turned the entire city of Zurich and a firmly established canon of values upside down. With a razor-sharp mind, he dissected the religious and social system, he denounced grievances and was not afraid to take on the most powerful of his time. In the end he, the opponent of war, died in a war that he himself had advocated.
