Q.: Which religious reformer of the sixteenth century anticipated so many Latter-day-Saint doctrines that he may truly be termed a Mormon theologian avant la lettre? A.: Michael Servetus (Miguel Serveto), the learned Spaniard from Aragon burned alive by the Protestants in 1553. Latter-day-Saints honor Luther, Calvin, Wycliffe, and others as path-pavers for the Restoration, but Serveto really is our man in the Radical Reformation and in Christian history. Come learn more about Servetus. Who is he? Which of his doctrines closely match those of Joseph Smith?
