This contribution assesses the ways in which Reformed theology students in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries learned how to preach. Based on Genevan and French sources, as well as a training manual for pastors by Andreas Hyperius, the author argues that although the sermon stood at the center of Reformed worship, the training in homiletics given to future pastors was rather haphazard. Consistency of preparation was also hampered by disputes between various church authorities over the oversight of candidates, and by the candidates' own emphasis on form over substance in their sermons, particularly in the early seventeenth century.
