Zwinglian

Zwinglian an adherent or supporter of the Swiss Protestant reformer Ulrich Zwingli (1484–1531), the principal figure of the Swiss Reformation. He was minister of Zurich from 1518, where he sought to carry through his political and religious reforms. He rejected papal authority and many orthodox doctrines, and although he had strong local support in Zurich, his ideas met with fierce resistance in some regions. Zwingli was killed in the civil war that resulted from his reforms.
