Next to Zurich, the two biggest gains for the movement were the cities of Bern and Basel, though both moved at a very cautious pace. Evangelical preachers were active in Bern in the early 1520s, and the council allowed for the preaching of the Word in 1523; but because Bern was so closely bound to French affairs to the east the magistracy had to act with care. Not until the disputation of January 1528, which had effectively been forced on the council by the strength of lay support, did the process of reform begin – images were removed from the churches, the diocesan jurisdiction was suspended, and a new service with a new liturgy was introduced.
Like the Wittenberg theologians, Zwingli preached that all Christians had the right, and to a certain extent the ability, to judge whether an idea or a practice was in line with the teachings of Scripture. He also believed that the best way to gather support for the movement was to address the laity directly, to make reform a public concern rather than a private quarrel. What was unique about the first disputation in Zurich (January 29, 1523), however, was that it was not instigated by the reformer but the city council.
Since 1520, he had been preaching against what he termed the “invented, external worship” of Catholicism, and that included devotion of saints, religious festivals, some forms of tithes, monastic orders, and clerical celibacy (indeed, he married a widow in 1522). In the Apologeticus Archeteles (1522), his first major statement of faith, Zwingli opened with an appeal to his countrymen to defend the freedom of the gospel against human doctrines and false prophets, whether they be bishops, popes, or general councils.
