While strolling around the city of Zurich, you will definitely come across the Ullrich Zwingli monument which was designed by the sculptor Henrich Natter in 1885. This monument was built in order to commemorate Zwingli who was a leader of the Swiss-German Protestant Reformation in Switzerland and was well known for having introduced radical thoughts in the country. For example, he criticized the whole concept of fasting during Lent period. Due to his ideologies, he was always in contestation with the Anabaptists, a reason for which he was persecuted later on. Today, this monument reflects and remembers his progressive ideologies which sought to make a change in the country of Switzerland.
