Zwingli

Of course he is allowed to say it, his sentence. The sentence everyone knows, even if they have no idea about Zwingli. There are also words that sound like clear spring water: “Do something brave for God’s sake.” And Zwingli (Max Simonischek) says it in such a way that one senses: He is aware of its consequences. After all, you are not in any movie. “Zwingli” directed by Stefan Haupt is the film for the Reformation anniversary, because it is about historical memory. And a war. Against the Catholic Central Swiss.

The cause of the Reformation is on the verge. The year is 1531, it is the beginning of October, a few days later Zwingli will fall. Together with over four hundred other young people from Zurich who had been hurriedly recruited by the council – to a poorly prepared, poorly equipped army that had no chance against the overwhelming numbers it faces in Kappel.

Zwingli’s end is miserable. He was quartered and burned on the battlefield. He did not receive a grave, heretics had nothing else to expect. Later, in Lucerne, a perforated helmet and a sword were used as a symbol of victory over the Reformed. Zwingli’s helmet? His own weapon? Hardly, although they were presented since the 19th century in Zurich as memorabilia. But that did not matter. It was about symbols, and who wants to be picky.
