Registers of the Consistory of Geneva in the Time of Calvin Registers of the Consistory of Geneva in the Time of Calvin

Volume 1: 1542-1544

by Kingdon, Robert M. (general editor), Lambert, Thomas A. (editor), Watt, Isabella M. (editor), McDonald, M. Wallace (translator)

This critical edition of the Registers of the Consistory of Geneva in the time of Calvin reveals what life was like during the Protestant Reformation in a city where ecclesiastical discipline affected many. These valuable primary source documents- the great bulk of which has remained unknown to most modern researchers- are of crucial importance for study of this period in church history. Volume 1 (the only one so far) records the activity of the Consistory between 1542 and 1544. Arbitration of disputes, surveillance of morals, repression of the vestiges of the Roman Catholicism, promotion of the Reformed mode of living, resolution of matrimonial cases- this is a general sketch of the Consistory’s work during its earliest days.
