Calvin’s ideas on polity and church authority were refracted by his churchmen in divergent directions. An examination of a range of writings by two English churchmen, John Whitgift and Richard Bancroft, reveals a common logic to the influence that Calvin exerted on them and which underlay their approach to the impact of evangelical reform on episcopacy. This paper identifies Calvin’s influence on the English episcopate and suggests insights about the presence of godly doctrines within rather than beyond the structures of the Church of England.
