Abstract

PAUL AS CALVIN'S (AMBIVALENT) PASTORAL MODEL R. WARD HOLDER Manchester, New Hampshire For the last two decades,' scholars have been drawing attention to the fact that the academy has not yet delved fully enough into the fatc of the clergy during the Reformation.' That oversight has only been somewhat corrected in those two decades, not only for social and cultural historians, but also for theologians and historians of doc- trine. We can demonstrate this in the case of John Calvin and Geneva. Frequently, a less than helpful glance at Calvin's two 'marks' of the church, the pure preaching and hearing of the Word and the right administration of the sacraments, suffices for having 'dealt with' pastoral activity in Calvin's Geneva. Anyone who has ever been, or actually ever seen a pastor senses that this is incomplete, yet thc: scarcity of studies into what Calvin actually believed about the nature of the pastorate remains a stark reminder of that which awaits completion.' ' An earlier form of this paper was read at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in Pittsburgh, PA, October 30, 2003. 2 Robert M. Kingdon, 'Calvin and the Government of Geneva', in Calvinus Ecclesiae Genevensis Custos. Die
