The Registres du Conseil for the year 1537 contain a wealth of information about the legal, economic, social and religious history of Geneva. Geneva has to struggle to defend its political independence and economic interests against outside pressure, while at home the tension is mounting. The Reformation’s numerous rules and regulations, accompanied by unpopular disciplinary measures, are not well received by the population. Trust for the Petit Conseil, which supports the ministers from abroad imposing this ecclesiastic discipline, is eroding. When the ministers want to ban anyone having failed to sign the profession of faith from receiving communion, the authorities have to refuse before they lose their subjects’ trust altogether. The Reformation seems badly compromised.
