2007 0-7734-5482-9 Huldrych Zwingli, the “third man of the Reformation,” is generally remembered as a stern, abrupt and solemn individual. This characterization was proven wrong with the publication of Fritz Schmidt-Clausing’s volume on the humor of Zwingli (Otto Lembeck Verlag, 1968). This volume, long out of print, is now offered again in a bilingual German/English edition, making Zwingli’s humorous remarks, anecdotes, and stories accessible to students, scholars and interested laypersons once again.
