Chapter Summary

The Reformed Church of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines was founded in 1550 under the protection of the seigneurs de Ribeaupierre. Located in Alsace and within the borders of the Empire, the town was home to Lutherans, Anabaptists, Catholics and Reformed. Already in 1558, the Reformed community had a Confession of Faith, a Church Discipline and, a little later, a Catechism. As with other Reformed Churches, it was governed by a consistory. The registers of this consistory, preserved for the period beginning in 1634, indicate that its principal concerns were poor relief, ecclesiastical administration, and "scandals". The latter category can be divided into "religious scandals" and "moral scandals". Moral scandals were more common, taking into account matters such as drunkenness, injury, quarrels, fights, marital discord, and mistreatment.
