Heinrich Bullinger, successor to Zwingli

Upon the untimely death of Zwingli, Heinrich Bullinger (A.D. 1504- 1575)  became pastor of the Gossmunster in Zurich. He is not as well known as other leaders of the early Reformation, but was a significant thinker and writer.  This statue of Bullinger is attached on the wall of the Grossmunster to the right of the entry.

In the days of Zwingli the altars and images were removed from the Grossmunster in Zurich. The interior of the building has been restored to its orignal Romanesque appearance.
