The cathedral church of Saint Pierre also testifies the city’s historical patrimony. It is perceived as the birthplace of the schism from the Roman Catholic Church initiated by Martin Luther and continued by John Calvin. In that way, Geneva became a refuge for persecuted Protestants around the world and was perceived as a “Protestant Rome”.

Geneva and the international politics
