Calvin attempted to appeal to change the sentence the less inhumane punishment of beheading. Farel and Calvin visited Servetus before execution but he refused to recant.

Ch. 15: Doctrine of Man
Twofold Knowledge of ourselves: “The knowledge of ourselves is twofold: namely, to know what we were like when we were first created and what our condition became after the fall of Adam.” [Bk1.15.1, p.183]
Ch.16-18: Doctrine of Divine Providence
Bk1.17.1: The meaning of God's ways (pp.210-211)
Three things, indeed, are to be noted: First, God's providence must be considered with regard to the future as well as the past.
Secondly, it is the deterministic principle of all things in such a way that sometimes it works through an intermediary, sometimes without... sometimes contrary to every intermediary.
Finally, it strives to the end that God may reveal his concern for the whole human race, but especially his vigilance in ruling the church, which he deigns to watch more closely.
