Calvin argued that there was a real but spiritual presence in the bread and wine. Calvin believed that the Eucharist should only be celebrated once a month. Beza became the leader of the Church of Geniva after Calvin's death in 1564 (he lived till he was about 90) Exiles from all over Europe came to Geniva (almost all social and ethnic groups). Calvinism doesn't have a great success in Germany. 1559 Count of the Palatinate said he agreed with Calvin's view of the Eucharist. Erastus, Erasian Bullinger, Calvin, and a few others created the 2 nd Helvetic Creed. Calvin had the most influence on this. Calvin was interested in reforming his homeland of France. 1541, Institutes of Christian Religion, he translates it into French and Calvinism spreads fairly quickly. By 1550, every protestant was a Calvinist. In 15 , all copies of Institutes was burned, and it was a capital offense to have a copy. A number of prominent French noble families were becoming Protestant.
