Heinrich Bullinger’s Foundation

Until the end of 2020, the project was supported financially by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Reformed Church of the Canton of Zurich. In the meantime, however, the Swiss National Science Foundation has changed its funding policy. Long-term projects are no longer supported. The Reformed Church of the Canton of Zurich, for its part, cannot afford to finance the project on its own.

That is why the Heinrich Bullinger Foundation was launched in December 2020.

The aim of the Foundation is to collect funds to pay the salary of two experts  at the Institute for Swiss Reformation History. The task of the two experts is to continue publishing Bullinger’s correspondence.

The Heinrich Bullinger Foundation was launched by persons concerned about making historical sources accessible to the general public.
