Chapter Summary

Calvin's Geneva attracted numerous refugees who sought the pure truths of Christianity and, equally important, their daily practice as assured by a new ecclesiastical institution, the consistory. Some Genevans were deeply opposed to the developments. Others, men such as Michel Roset and François Bonivard, both of whom wrote chronicles describing these turbulent times, were ardent "fans". Within the refugee population, many Frenchmen, Italians and Englishmen, and even some converted Anabaptists also became "fans" of the consistory.

Keywords: Calvin's Geneva; Christianity; consistory; François Bonivard; Michel Roset
