L'élargissement du cadre historiographique, si brilliant dans les études calviniennes de ces dernières décennies, en course des réseaux sociaux et institutionnels, ou des questions liées aux moyens et aux helps de los angeles verbal exchange (écriture, prédication, livre imprimé) va ainsi de pair avec los angeles mise en reduction du rôle et de los angeles physionomie individuelle du réformateur. Il en ressort l'image d'un réformateur, certes exclusiviste dans certains de ses choix, mais dont los angeles pensée manifeste aussi une capacité d'adaptation polymorphe.
