 Higher Praise Greatest Preachers (Ulrich Zwingli)
Zwingli supported this shift in authority--claiming that the civil government, under the Lordship of Christ and guided in its work by the dictates of Scripture, was the legitimate voice or conscience of the believing community.
This was in keeping with Zwingli's humanist background--and its focus on the Greek and Hebrew origins of the church, and the sense that everything that was a departure from this classical age was a perversion of an original purity undergirding the church.
Zwingli (for whom the sermon, not the celebration of the eucharist, was the central point of Christian worship) interpreted Christ's words concerning his presence in the wine and bread as purely symbolic.

 Ulrich Zwingli, Huldrych Zwingli, Swiss Reformation

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.

 _ Ulrich Zwingli Zurich Zürich   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
At the vanguard of the Reformation, Huldrych (or Ulrich) Zwingli is one of the most radical anti-establishment figures in the whole history of Europe, a dedicated and eloquent humanist who developed a passion for the liberty of individuals to decide the course of their lives free from the strictures of the past.
Whereas Zwingli’s contemporary Martin Luther was poorly educated and underwent his internal religious crisis in social isolation, Zwingli came to his personal revolution through education, studying in Basel, Bern, Vienna and possibly Paris, and absorbing the humanist ideas of the Dutch philosopher Erasmus.
It says a great deal for Zwingli’s powers of persuasion and the city of Zürich’s courage that, in the historic disputation at a time of religious and political turbulence, the city council came down on the side of their preacher.

In the fourth place, after Zwingli’s marriage to Anna Reinhart, a respectable widow, in 1522, there was evidence that he remained faithful to his wife until his death at the battlefield in 1531.

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.
