Monument de la Réformation (Reformation Monument)

Genf

It is only fitting that the Reformation Monument be as grand as the leaders it honors-it measures 325 feet long and 30 feet high.

The massive wall pays homage to the 16th-century Calvinist Reformation and those who followed. The central four figures represent 15-foot likenesses of Geneva's Reformation leaders: William Farel, John Calvin, Théodor de Bèze and John Knox. Smaller figures include Roger Williams, leader of the Puritans in America, Oliver Cromwell of Great Britain, and William of Orange of the Netherlands. At the top of the monument the words "Post Tenebras Lux," are Latin for "After the darkness, light."
