 History of the Christian Church, Volume VIII: Modern Christianity. The Swiss Reformation. (iv.iv.v)
The Reformation was introduced in the city and district of St. Gall by Joachim von Watt, a layman (1484–1551), and John Kessler, a minister (1502–1574).
Joachim von Watt, better known by his Latin name Vadianus, excelled in his day as a humanist, poet, historian, physician, statesman, and reformer.
The usual opinion is that Vadian and Zwingli (and Glareanus) studied together and formed their friendship at Vienna.

 Zwingli - Encyclopedia of Religion
The disputation ended with the complete victory for the old Faith, but those who believed that the teaching of Zwingli could be driven out of the world by disputations deceived themselves; it had already taken too deep root.
They proved the occasion of a conflict with Luther which was never settled, but in the meantime more attention was attracted by Zwingljs denunciation of the worship of images and of the Roman doctrine of the mass.
These points were discussed at a fresh congress where about 900 persons were present, and where Vadian (Joachim von Watt, the reformer of St Gall) presided.

From these letters any one will easily discern what the temper of that man was,-obviously that of an academic, although it was long (indeed not till after his death) before the fact was fully established.
Accordingly, Joachim, a Westphalian, sounded the trumpet, which was afterwards echoed by Heshusius, then a minister of the Word, and now a bishop.
Part of this year, which was very turbulent, in consequence of tumults excited by some of these factious ministers, and distressing from the dearness of corn, he spent in maintaining the truth against Joachim the Westphalian.

 Theology Today - Vol 27, No. 2 - July 1970 - BOOK REVIEW - Patterns of Reformation
Here we have the flair (a quotation from Uncle Remus introduces the chapter on the Wittenberg turmoil 1521-22), the sparkle (Rupp says of Michelangelo's "Daniel" that it would do well for Thomas Muntzer), the creative insight (the exposition of Muntzer's "gospel of all creatures") we have come to expect.
Those on Oecolampadius and Vadian are brief and, while vivid, do little more than restate (in Ruppian fashion) the scholarly consensus on these two men.
The essays on Carlstadt and Muntzer, on the other hand, are of substantial length (actually almost half of the book is on Muntzer) and significant scholarly insight.

 [No title]
A sudden and violent outburst of Anabaptism endangered the cause in St. Gall, but the fanaticism soon spent itself; and the preachers returning from a conference at Baden with fresh courage, the reformation of the canton was completed.
The images were removed from the Church of St. Lawrence, and the robes, jewels, and gold chains which adorned them sold to found alms-houses.4 In 1528 we find Vadian writing, "Our temples at St. Gall are purged from idols, and the glorious foundations of the building of Christ are being more laid every day."5
In the canton of Glarus the Reformed movement had been begun by Zwingle himself.

 The History of Protestantism - Volume First - Book Eighth - History of Protestantism in Switzerland From A.D. 1516 to ...
Joachim Vadian, the son of a rich merchant of St. Gall; Henry Loreti, commonly known as Glarean, a peasant's son, from Mollis; and a Suabian youth, John Heigerlin, the son of a flsmith, and hence called Faber, were at this time in Vienna, and were Zwingli's companions in his studies and in his amusements.
All three gave promise of future eminence; and all three attained it; but no one of the three rendered anything like the same service to the world, or achieved the same lasting fame, as the fourth, the shepherd's son from the Tockenburg.
As soon as his pupils were ripe, he sent them either to Vienna, in the University of which Vadian, the friend of his youth, had risen to the rank of rector, or to Basle, where Glarean, another of his friends, had opened a seminary for young men.

 Overview of the worldwide reformed church
The Reformation spread primarily in the cities and took a different course in each part of the country.
The breakthrough began in the 1520s: in Zurich 1522/23 (under Zwingli 1484-1531), in Bern 1528 (under Berchtold Haller), in Basel 1529 (under John Oekolampad), in St. Gallen 1529 (under Joachim Vadian), in Neuchâtel 1530 (under Guillaume Farel), and in Geneva 1535/36 (under Farel and Calvin).
Zurich became the spiritual center of the Zwinglian reform.

 Baptism and Statism
It can be proved that Zwingli was in contact with the "school of heretics" in Zurich.
Zwingli's original opposition to charging interest, to capitalism, stems from this "school of heretics." As late as 1523, Grebel wrote to his brother-in-law, Joachim Vadian, who was a member of the Great Council of St. Gall, that interest and tithes would soon be abolished in Zurich with Zwingli's agreement.
Unfortunately, he had to write a month later that Zwingli had defected from his own convictions and had agreed with the decision of the Council, which had come out in favor of tithes and charging interest.

 EVEN UNTO DEATH
The some what impudent son could write to Vadian (Dr. Joachim von Watt), married to Martha Grebel, Conrad's sister: "Sniff onions, and go hang." Conrad complained bitterly that his father had never taught him how to use money, and he demonstrated rather well the truth of his complaint.
Here he wrote his last letter which has been preserved; it was dated May 30, 1525, and addressed to his brother-in-law Vadian, reformer and civic leader in St. Gall, his "brother in the Lord." The letter is a vigorous plea not to attempt the suppression of Anabaptism by fines, confiscation of property, imprisonment, or death.
Grebel solemnly declared that any blood shed in this matter is innocent blood: "Innocent it verily is, both if you know it and if you do not." The suffering of the Anabaptists, "and the end of their lives, and the great day of the Lord" will demonstrate their innocence.
