    I just began to read Calvin's Institutes again, coming across a simple question.
    As we all know, Calvin made his wonderful prefatory address to King Francis I.
    Is there any historical record showing that Francis received it at his hands and read it? Was there any response of Francis to Calvin's address? Is there a consensus of historians about this matter?

    @Ryan J. Ross did some academic work in this area, perhaps he may know.
