In the sixteenth century, Geneva Protestants internalized a new concept of time and applied a particular ethic to their lives. Every minute God watches his faithful, and they, come Judgment day, will have to account for each minute, as Calvin constantly reminded them. And so it was that Geneva’s inhabitants invented a modern virtue, punctuality, unknown in Antiquity, the Middle Ages or even to Erasmus, Vivès, the early Jesuits, Rabelais, Ronsard or Montaigne. Punctuality did not proceed from technical innovation: it was above all a spiritual, social and disciplinary virtue.
