Calvin and the Consolidation of the Genevan Reformation

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This work presents a complete re-evaluation of Calvin's rise to power in Geneva. Calvin's consolidation of his position and particular brand of Protestantism was of paramount importance to the wider Reformation movement, especially in France, Scotland and England. Naphy's extensive research in Geneva's archives has produced an in-depth view of Geneva's politics, ruling elite and socio-economic milieu. Naphy reinterprets the nature of politics in Reformation Geneva by examining the role of the entire political ruling class, ministers, the French refugees and Calvin's local supporters on the Consitory, Geneva's ecclesiastical court.
