From the Consistory’s earliest days, some Genevans found the displine difficult to bear. However, as the sixteenth-century chronicler Michel Roset noted, it wasn’t until early 1547 that the Consistory’s disciplinary measures “enflamed” François Favre and other powerful Genevans, pushing them into the opposition against Calvin. The Consistory still examined marital disputes and reconciled conflicts. Genevans who proffered aphrodisiacs to new brides put in their appearance in this volume. It admonished those who observed “papist” holy days and who preferred to pray in Latin. Genevans who secreted away the communion bread to take home and a drunkard who vomited during sermon were all hauled before the Consistory. This volume thus remains a rich and varied source for social history. However, historians who are especially interested in the Calvinist Reformation will also see in the volume the gathering clouds that will unleash the storm of 1555 from which Calvin will ultimately emerge triumphant. Challenges to the authority of the Consistory become frequent over the period, as do xenophobic remarks directed at the French refugees. It becomes increasingly evident that the future of the Genevan Reformation hangs in the balance. This volume makes available in accessible form the best source for following the development of the opposition to the Calvinist Reform in Geneva.
