This ninth volume of the registers of the Consistory of Geneva (1554) is noticeably longer than those for the three previous years, a reflection of the intensification of the on-going conflicts that Calvin and the Consistory had with the self-proclaimed Enfants de Genève, who sought to curb the influence of the pastors, who were all French. The administration of the Holy Supper continued to be a key point of contention, as the Consistory still claimed to have the exclusive right to admit and exclude people from the sacrament. Others believed that excommunication was under the purview of the Small Council, and this matter was not definitively resolved until the following year. In 1554, Calvin and other Genevan leaders also had strong conflicts with Bern; certain pastors in Bern condemned as heretical the doctrine of predestination, and Jerome Bolsec, expelled from Geneva for his stand against that doctrine, openly resided in Bernese territory where he aggressively attacked the theology of Calvin. The Consistory continued to take action against dancing, mundane songs, games of chance, and superstitions (most notably against therapeutic magic). Quite common were actions against sexual activity outside of marriage, and the Consistory punished even married couples who had fornicated before the wedding. One finds in these registers many examples of people who, after converting to the Reformed faith, returned to their native France or Savoy where they attended Mass. To Calvin’s dismay, many people switched comfortably between Reformed and Catholic worship depending on where they were living.
