Contrary to what happened in France , men trained in Geneva were seldom to be found calling the signals for local upheavals . Conversely , as Bob Kingdon noted in his Conclusion fifty years ago , men trained in Geneva , like Marnix van ...

Geneva and the Coming of the Wars of Religion in France  1555 1563

Au temps des guerres de religion de nombreux pasteurs formés à Genève prirent part aux conflits et tentèrent d'amener la Fille aînée de l'Eglise à la foi réformée. Geneva and the Coming of the Wars of Religion in France (1555-1563) met en évidence le rôle déterminant que certains prédicateurs jouèrent dans cette période de troubles, révélant l'imbrication, une fois encore, des pouvoirs religieux et politique. Cet essai ayant considérablement marqué la pensée historique sur la Réforme, un tel classique se devait d'être réimprimé. Dans sa postface à la nouvelle édition, Robert Kingdon livre moult détails sur la genèse de l'ouvrage dont l'édition initiale remonte à la Guerre froide.

Semper Reformanda

The chapters in this volume contribute to recent scholarship exploring the reform of worship as a central feature of Protestant communities at their inception and through the ages. Case studies ranging from sixteenth-century Geneva and its environs to the early modern Netherlands and South Asia to nineteenth-century America provide a corrective to traditional depictions of Reformed worship as a static, sober, interior, and largely individual experience focused on the sermon. The key moments in the broad stream of Reformed worship traditions analysed by an international team of experts yield collectively an image of the adaptive and negotiated character of worship attitudes and practices over time and in varied cultural settings. The contributions examine the phenomenon of worship in broadly construed ways and from angles ranging from ritual studies, liturgical innovation, material culture, and social impact. A second »red thread« running through the volume concerns the material, sensory, emotional, and experiential dimensions of Reformed religious culture. Worship emerges as both a site of conflict and renewal in Reformed traditions, inspiring not only confrontations and debates but also fruitful engagements that stimulated and continue to invite reflection on this critical category of Reformed faith traditions, self-understandings, and cultural impact.

Society and Culture in Early Modern France

These essays, three of them previously unpublished, explore the competing claims of innovation and tradition among the lower orders in sixteenth-century France. The result is a wide-ranging view of the lives and values of men and women (artisans, tradesmen, the poor) who, because they left little or nothing in writing, have hitherto had little attention from scholars. The first three essays consider the social, vocational, and sexual context of the Protestant Reformation, its consequences for urban women, and the new attitudes toward poverty shared by Catholic humanists and Protestants alike in sixteenth-century Lyon. The next three essays describe the links between festive play and youth groups, domestic dissent, and political criticism in town and country, the festive reversal of sex roles and political order, and the ritualistic and dramatic structure of religious riots. The final two essays discuss the impact of printing on the quasi-literate, and the collecting of common proverbs and medical folklore by learned students of the "people" during the Ancien Régime. The book includes eight pages of illustrations.

Anglo French Relations in the Twentieth Century

Anglo-French Relations in the Twentieth Century is a collection of studies on the key episodes of the difficult and often discordant Anglo-French exchange over the past century. The authors critically re-evaluate: * the role of Spain in Anglo-French relations up to 1918 * the missed opportunity of the 1920s with the failure of France and Britain to find sufficient common ground and co-operation * the short-lived Anglo-French alliance and the Second World War * the degree of Anglo-French Imperial co-operation * the Suez Crisis * British and French policies on European Integration.
