Sue A. Rozeboom the provenance—the impetus, the derivation, or source—of Calvin's emphasis on the role of the Holy Spirit with regard to believers' participation in the Lord's Supper, and, further, his particular expression of that emphasis? With due caution regarding the difficulty of discerning the provenance of any particular element of his thought, this study offers a consideration of 1) Calvin's early doctrine of the Trinity, 2) the thought of several of his contemporaries, and 3) his patristic references on this point. In the end, Calvin's emphasis is suggested to be his assimilation of elements deriving from each of these three resources. Finally, Calvin's liturgy is considered, since it exhibits a failure on his part to assimilate his pneumatological emphasis liturgically and euchologically.
