The Institute for Swiss Reformation Studies at the Faculty of Theology and the Study of Religion at the University of Zurich was established on October 1, 1964. Its main purpose is to research the Reformation in Switzerland with a focus on Huldrych Zwingli, Heinrich Bullinger and Anabaptism.
Since September 2023, the Institute has been under the direction of Prof. Dr. Tobias Jammerthal.
