Many researches have been done concerning the contexts and the factors which effected the theology and character of John Calvin. At least three contemporary scenes should be considered as the dominant context when speaking about Calvin. First,the Rome from which the Reformer seceded; second, the Anabaptists;and third, the humanists especially Renaissance humanism. This essay looks at the core of Renaissance humanism, namely its emphasis on the Greek and Latin classics as the chief subject of study and as unrivalled models of imitation and in thinking and even in actual conduct. After a brief glance at Calvin's education, this essay attempts to explain the influence of Christian French humanism on Calvin in his ethics and theology, and its ongoing relevance to our contemporary situation in Indonesia today
