Calvin on Islam

     “The defection has indeed spread more widely!  For, since Mohammed was an apostate, he turned his followers, the Turks, from Christ….   The sect of Mohammed was like a raging overflow, which in its violence tore away about half of the Church.   It remained for [the Papal] Antichrist to infect with his poison the part which was left.”24
