Chapter Summary

In the Pays de Vaud, which was under the administration of the City and Republic of Bern, the most powerful state in the Swiss Confederation, the exercise of morals control became, over the course of the eighteenth century, the object of an intense debate and a number of attempts at reform. These matters focused on the introduction of a right of exclusion from the Lord's Supper by the Vaudois consistories, the reaffirmation of the importance of catechism and the sermon service, and the creation of new educational institutions. During the first half of the eighteenth century, the pastors took the lead in demanding a purer society and in opposing a sovereign government which sought, within the context of a church placed under its authority, to relieve them of much of their autonomy.
