  Huldrych Zwingli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Huldrych (or Ulrich) Zwingli (January 1, 1484 October 11, 1531) was the leader of the Protestant Reformation in Switzerland, and founder of the Swiss Reformed Churches.
Zwingli was also known for his belief that the Christian sacrament was similar to a military oath or pledge in order to demonstrate an individual's willingness to listen and obey the written word of God.
Zwingli's successor, Heinrich Bullinger, was elected on December 9, 1531, to be the pastor of the Great Minster at Zürich, a position which he held to the end of his life (1575).

 Huldrych Zwingli
Zwingli indeed seemed still to be devoted to the pope, whom he styled "beatissimus Christi vicarius", and he publicly proclaimed the mercenary aid given by the Swiss to the papal cause to be its dutiful support of the Holy See.
Zwingli looked rather to the City Fathers than to the pope, and as long as he had them with him he moved confidently and labored for reforms which were as much political and moral in character as religious.
Zwingli prevailed on the council to forbid his entrance into Zürich; and even then the pope argued that, so long as the preacher was still receiving a papal pension, he could not be a formidable adversary, and he gave him a further sop in the form of an acolyte chaplaincy.

 Talk:Huldrych Zwingli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Both John Calvin and Ulrich Zwingli contributed to the Reformed Churches so some analysis would be of value.
I agree that this article should have at least a summary of Zwingli's view and how it differs from the other Reformers' views, and I don't think the merge would remove all mention of his theological legacy.
The article on Zwingli's theology can and should cover it in greater depth, however.

 Huldrych Zwingli
At the Latin School at Basle Zwingli came under the influence of Thomas Wyttenbach, from whom he began to learn the truth of the Gospel and to regard the Bible's authority as supreme, determining what man is to believe and what kind of service he is meant to render unto his Creator and Redeemer.
Zwingli proved to be a staunch adherent to the truth of Scripture; his departure from Romanism was essentially dictated by his conscience bound to the Word, as Luther's was too.
Zwingli emphasised doctrine; he taught, preached, disputed, and wrote in the cause of the gospel of Christ, whom he loved and desired other to taste and see that the Lord is good.

 Biography Huldrych Zwingli   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Born at Wildhaus in the mountainous Toggenburg, Zwingli was the son of the village mayor.
The turning point for Zwingli came in 1518, when he was called to Zurich as "people’s priest." After being at the point of death in a severe outbreak of plague, he started his reforming program by persuading the city council to judge religious issues only by Scripture.
Based on Zwingli’s expository preaching on the New Testament, radical changes came rapidly between 1522 and 1525: a translation of the Bible began, the Lenten fast and celibacy of the clergy ended, and the city council broke with the diocese of Constance and adopted Zwingli’s provocative Sixty-Seven Articles (1523).

Huldreich Zwingli or Ulrich Zwingli (1484-1531), was a Swiss theologian, leader of the Reformation in Switzerland.
Zwingli was born on January 1, 1484, in Wildhaus, Sankt Gallen.
Zwingli's strict adherence to the Bible led him in 1527 to remove the organ from the Great Minister, since Scripture nowhere mandated its use in worship (and this in spite of the fact that Zwingli was an accomplished musician who otherwise encouraged musical expression).

 Alfred Schindler: Huldrych Zwingli
Zwingli studied at Bern, Vienna, and Basel; after a brief period of theological study he was ordained priest and worked from 1506 at Glarus, from 1516 at Maria Einsiedeln.
Zwingli's entanglement in confessional alliance politics and in the drift towards war in Switzerland resulted in his death at the Battle of Kappel, 11 October 1531.
Some features of Zwingli's teaching that did not pass over into Calvinist orthodoxy are: stress on election rather than rejection in the doctrine of predestination; restriction of the effect of original sin to the corruption of nature, with guilt attaching only to actual sins; the possible salvation of pious pagans.

 Huldrych Zwingli on Reformed Instruction
Zwingli was convinced that learning should not be viewed as unrelated to action: education concerns a person's subsequent deeds.
It should also be noted that Zwingli was restructuring the grammar school and the theological college of the Great Minster church when he composed the treatise; he uses the opportunity to make comments upon training in such schools.
But Zwingli's injunctions apply also to adults, and though he deals with simple and obvious matters, he is careful to note the significance of them.

Zwingli himself, assisted by his fellow Swiss Reformer Heinrich Bullinger, took part in a disputation at Bern (1528) that formally introduced the principles of the Reformation to that city.
Zwingli, on the other hand, convinced that the word “is” has the force of “signifies,” did not maintain a “real” presence but simply the divine presence of Christ or his presence to the believer by the power of the Holy Spirit, as signified by the elements.
Zwingli would undoubtedly have welcomed agreement with Luther for political as well as theological reasons, for he saw a growing danger in the isolation of the Reforming cantons.

Zwingli explains the contextual and symbolic significance of the Eucharist with the analogy of the queen's ring.
Moreover, Zwingli argued that baptism was a superior sign since it was a gentler sign (involving no blood or pain) and both male and female children could be participate in the sacrament of baptism.
The persecution of the anabaptists under Zwingli is based in large part upon Reformed Covenant theology, for the refusal to have one's children baptized was no longer a minor theological disagreement, but it became an act against the church as community as city.

 H373 - The Reformation in Switzerland: Huldrych Zwingli and John Calvin
Huldrych Zwingli was born on January 1, 1484, and he died on October 11, 1531.
Zwingli hoped, when he learned of Luther's work, that the two of them would be able to work together to bring about the peaceful reformation of the Church.
Zwingli's reaction was to weep bitterly over their inability to come together; but Luther scoffed at Zwingli and from that point would have nothing to do with him -- even making fun of him in letters and lectures by calling him Zwingle.

 Theology Today - Vol 48, No.2 - July 1991 - BOOK REVIEW - The Theology of Huldrych Zwingli
Stephens does not attempt to resolve the difficult issue of Zwingli's relationship to scholastic theology, though he does address the problem and tries to bring the reader up to date on the current state of research.
Zwingli is not a balanced thinker who gives equal attention to all theological topics, as a modern systematic theologian is expected to do.
A synthetic treatment of Zwingli's thought tends by its very nature to flatten out the uneven landscape of his mind and, by doing so, to lose a good deal of the intellectual excitement Zwingli stimulates in his readers.

 Theology WebSite: Church History Study Helps: Ulrich (Huldrych) Zwingli
Ulrich Zwingli, chief of the Reformers of German-speaking Switzerland, was born on January 1, 1484 in Waldhaus.
Zwingli believed that the ultimate ecclesiastical authority is the Christian community (Gemiende), the local assembly of believers under the sole lordship of Christ and of the divinely inspired Scriptures that bear witness to redemption through him.
For this debate, Zwingli prepared sixty-seven brief articles, asserting that the Gospel derives no authority from the church and that salvation is by faith alone, and denying the sacrificial character of the Mass, the salvatory character of good works, the value of saintly intercessors, the binding character of monastic vows, and the existence of purgatory.

Although Zwingli worked in the shadow of Luther, apart from his contribution in his own immedicate area, Zwingli was in fact the pioneer without whom Reformed and Presbyterian theology and order could not have developed in the way they did.

The mass, Zwingli argued, was a remembrance of Christ’s redemptive sacrifice on Calvary.
Though Zwingli altogether abandoned sacramental theology he never concluded that God’s grace was wholly removed from the eucharistic ceremony.
  Zwingli’s negative doctrines on the eucharist betray both the extent to which he was influenced by the Renaissance emphasis on reason and his rejection of the medieval world-view.
