Volume ten of the registers of the Consistory of Geneva covers 1555, a decisive year for the success of John Calvin’s disciplinary regime. A riot in May gave the reformer and his supporters the opportunity to purge the city of various leaders of the self-proclaimed Enfants de Genève, who were opposed to Calvinist discipline. The authority of Calvin and the Consistory was never again questioned during his lifetime. The records of 1555 provide a valuable window to these conflicts and show continuity in the actions taken by the Consistory in previous years. For example, blasphemy and fornication continued to be among the most common offenses cited. With its power now secure, however, the Consistory was also able to attack forms of behavior it had previously largely ignored. For example, it began prosecuting more aggressively magic and superstition, especially regarding the consultation of healers. In subsequent years, the Consistory became even more emboldened and widened the scope of its actions, aptly showing that 1555 marked the decisive turning point for the Consistory’s role in changing the behavior of Genevans.
