Abstract

In the mid-1960s, two young American scholars, E. William Monter and Robert M. Kingdon, began to delve into the sixteenth-century registers of the Genevan consistory to an unprecedented degree, setting off a new wave of investigations into the implementation of Reformed discipline that continues into the present. Many of these studies have been undertaken by Kingdon’s own Ph.D. students (including me), and the topics of investigation have ranged widely. To date, however, no single book has provided a broad overview of the workings of the Genevan consistory and its embodiment of the Reformed ideals of Christian discipline as articulated by John Calvin and his Genevan colleagues. Robert Kingdon’s parting contribution to Reformation scholarship, completed with the assistance of Thomas Lambert and published after Kingdon’s death in December 2010, was to provide such an overview founded in his extensive knowledge of the consistory records, accrued over nearly five decades. This volume, based on Kingdon’s 1999 Levi Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary, reflects his career-long concern to produce work on Calvin and the Genevan Reformation that was free of both historical and current-day denominational agendas and biases. As Lambert explains in his brief preface, before suffering a brain hemorrhage
