Calvin on transubstantiation

He commands me in His Holy Communion, to take, eat and drink His body and His blood under the signs of bread and wine. I do not doubt that He gives me what He promises, and that I receive them. I only reject the absurdities and false imaginations that contradict His majesty, or the truth of His human nature, in light of the fact that they are also contrary to the word of God, which teaches that Jesus Christ being received in the glory of Heaven, should not be searched for down here, and attributes to His human nature all that which is proper to man.

Calvin, Institution, IV.XVII.32
