Summary/Abstract: In Calvin’s eschatological reflection the intermediate state of the believer is of primary importance. After death the soul leaves body, the body (and only the body) falls into sleep, thesoul, however, rests by God. The perfect happiness of the soul is not diminished by the factthat in this intermediate state one still has to wait for the resurrection. Although Calvin usesplatonic terminology in order to clarify his ideas, the scriptural content usually overwrites thisplatonic terminology.The prudence, ingenuity, critical acumen, erudition, and biblical thinking of Calvin makehis eschatological cogitations worthy of (re)considering for his 21st century readers, too.
