In Calvin's corporation of Pastors, Scott Manetsch examines the pastoral theology and functional ministry actions of Geneva's reformed ministers from the time of Calvin's arrival in Geneva until eventually the start of the 17th century. in the course of those seven many years, greater than one hundred thirty males have been enrolled in Geneva's Venerable corporation of Pastors (as it was once called), together with awesome reformed leaders corresponding to Pierre Viret, Theodore Beza, Simon Goulart, Lambert Daneau, and Jean Diodati. apart from those better-known epigones, Geneva's pastors from this era stay hidden from view, cloaked in Calvin's lengthy shadow, although they performed a strategic position in retaining and reshaping Calvin's pastoral legacy.
Making large use of archival fabrics, released sermons, catechisms, prayer books, own correspondence, and theological writings, Manetsch deals an attractive and brilliant portrait of pastoral lifestyles in 16th- and early seventeenth-century Geneva, exploring the style during which Geneva's ministers conceived in their pastoral workplace and played their day-by-day duties of preaching, public worship, ethical self-discipline, catechesis, administering the sacraments, and pastoral care. Manetsch demonstrates that Calvin and his colleagues have been even more than ivory tower theologians or "quasi-agents of the state," involved basically with shelling out theological info to their congregations or imposing magisterial authority. quite, they observed themselves as religious shepherds of Christ's Church, and this self-understanding formed to an important measure their day-by-day paintings as pastors and preachers.

Of Geneva’s seven parish churches, two were demolished, one converted to a lecture hall (the Auditoire), and three left open for public worship: the temple of St. Pierre in the Upper City, the temple of the Madeleine in the Lower City, and the temple of St. 1).
