"In Calvin's Geneva, the changes associated with the Reformation were particularly abrupt and far-reaching, in large part owing to John Calvin himself. Adultery and Divorce in Calvin's Geneva makes two major contributions to our understanding of this time. The first is to the history of divorce. The second is in illustrating the operations of the Consistory of Geneva--an institution designed to control in all its variety the behavior of the entire population--which was established at Calvin's insistence in 1541. This mandate came shortly after the city officially adopted Protestantism in 1536, a time when divorce became legally possible for the first time in centuries. Robert Kingdon illustrates the changes that accompanied the earliest Calvinist divorces by examining in depth a few of the most dramatic cases and showing how divorce affected real individuals. He considers first, and in the most detail, divorce for adultery, the best-known grounds for divorce and the best documented. He also covers the only other generally accepted grounds for these early divorces--desertion. The second contribution of the book, to show the work of the Consistory of Geneva, is a first step toward a fuller study of the institution. Kingdon has supervised the first accurate and complete transcription of the twenty-one volumes of registers of the Consistory and has made the first extended use of these materials, as well as other documents that have never before been so fully utilized."--Amazon.ca

Reforming Geneva : discipline, faith and anger in Calvin's Geneva by Robert M Kingdon( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Calvinist Reformation is characterized above all by a focus on church discipline enforced by church courts known as consistories. The Geneva consistory served as the model and mother institution throughout the Calvinist world. In this book, Robert M. Kingdon surveys the theoretical underpinnings of the Calvinist emphasis on discipline and how theory was put into practice by John Calvin in Reformation Geneva. Professor Kingdon looks in turn at how the Geneva consistory and the pastors and councilors who staffed it reformed religious practice, religious education and marriage practices. Finally, Robert M. Kingdon uses the emotion of hatred as a lens to examine how Calvin and his colleagues attempted to reform emotions. He delves into the way in which Calvin and his colleagues employed the consistory to attenuate interpersonal hatred, while employing propaganda to whip up interconfessional hatred. Robert M. Kingdon was America's pre-eminent scholar of the Calvinist Reformation. Thomas A. Lambert wrote his doctoral thesis on the Genevan Reformation under Professor Kingdon and has since been his collaborator on a series of critical editions of the Registers of the Geneva Consistory, also published by Droz. Thomas A. Lambert helped Robert Kingdon finish this long-planned work, based on his 1999 Stone Lectures at the Princeton Theological Seminary. A scholar to the end, Kingdon was able to read and approve all substantive changes to this work just three days before his passing in December 2010. This final work from Professor Kingdon deserves a place on the shelf of all Reformation scholars
