Zwingli was rather closer to the type of disaffected parish clergyman that made up the first generation of evangelical preachers, driven by a private sense of religious mission. Born into a family of farmers in Wildhaus in the Toggenburg valley, Zwingli completed his primary and secondary education in Basel and Bern before attending university in Vienna and finishing a masters degree in Basel. With a relatively basic theological background, Zwingli was ordained into the priesthood in 1506 and took up his first post in the rural canton of Glarus, where he remained for ten years before moving on to the parish of Einsiedeln in 1516.
Nor was Zwingli the lone voice of evangelical reform in Zurich. Leo Jud (1482–1542), who had been Zwingli’s colleague in Einsiedeln and had translated some of Luther’s Latin works into German, was also preaching against false laws and superfluous images, and in 1522 he performed a vernacular baptism in the Great Minster. Both men were able to preach in this manner because Zwingli had the support of the city magistracy.

During the early 1520s, local clergymen and itinerant preachers began to take the ideas of Wittenberg and Zurich into the countryside.
