A.D. 1519: When Huldrych Zwingli begins preaching as a priest in Zurich, the plague affects him. Looking death in the face, God's Word carries him through and he survives. Encouraged, he turns Zurich upside down with the Bible in his hand.
While Heinrich Bullinger and Leo Jud wait for news from Huldrych Zwingli from the bloody battle of Kappel am Albis, the young Bullinger learns from Jud how things could get this far: When Zwingli begins to preach as a priest in Zurich, the plague attacks him. Looking death in the face, God's Word carries him through and he survives. Encouraged and strengthened, Zwingli turns Zurich upside down with the Bible in his hand. With the desire to make the Bible understandable to people, Zwingli and his friends begin to translate the book into the popular speech. However, resistance - even from the closest circle of friends - increases more and more.Written by
The film was financed completely by a crowdfunding and was produced on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in Zurich. See more »
Yes. But above all, I found one thing: Veritas! The truth!
I wonder if it exists? Vere absolutum? But it's nice if you've found *your* truth.
[taking his Greek New Testament from Erasmus of Rotterdam]
The Bible in the original text: without traditions, without interpretations, without additions. God has revealed Himself solely in the Bible.

Very well done low budget movie. The acting is incredible - probably the closest as it was in real life. CGI is great too specially considering that they didnt invest money into that either.
Worth to watch!
