Dire l’interdit

The Vocabulary of Censure and Exclusion in the Early Modern Reformed Tradition

Series:

Edited by Raymond Mentzer, Françoise Moreil and Philippe Chareyre

Church discipline and the Reformed consistory, whether in Hungary, the Swiss world, France, The Netherlands or the British Isles, have become the subject of intense scholarly discussion. The fifteen essays gathered in this volume examine the process of censure and excommunication across Europe from the mid-sixteenth through the late eighteenth centuries. They reevaluate the relationship of women to ecclesiastical authority and explore the complex ways in which exclusion from the Lord’s Supper operated. Several contributors trace the decrease in excommunication over time; others underscore national differences in its nature and the surprising infrequency of application. Together, they offer a fresh, unanticipated and illuminating portrait of the reform of morals associated with John Calvin and his followers.

Les disciplines ecclésiastiques et les consistoire réformés aussi bien en Hongrie, que dans le monde Suisse, la France, les Pays-Bas ou les Îles britanniques, ont fait l'objet d'intenses débats universitaires. Les quinze textes réunis dans ce volume examinent les processus de censure et d'excommunication pratiqués dans toute l'Europe depuis le milieu du XVIe siècle jusqu'à la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Ils réexaminent les positions des femmes face à l'autorité ecclésiastique et explorent les différentes manières de concevoir et d'appliquer l'exclusion de la Cène. Plusieurs contributeurs décrivent la diminution de la pratique de l'excommunication au fil du temps, d'autres soulignent les différences nationales dans sa nature et les surprenantes variations de son application. Tous offrent un nouveau portrait, inattendu et éclairant, de la réforme de la morale associée à Jean Calvin et ses successeurs.

Contributors are Edwin Bezzina, Serge Brunet, Philippe Chareyre, Christian Grosse, Robert M. Kingdon, Suzannah Lipscomb, Michelle Magdelaine, Françoise Moreil, Graeme Murdock, Judith Pollmann, Didier Poton, Salomon Rizzo, Andrew Spicer, Karen Spierling, Nicole Staremberg Goy, and Margo Todd.

The Huguenots are among the best known of early modern European religious minorities. Their suffering in 16th and 17th-century France is a familiar story. The flight of many Huguenots from the kingdom after 1685 conferred upon them a preeminent place in the accounts of forced religious migrations. Their history has become synonymous with repression and intolerance. At the same time, Huguenot accomplishments in France and the lands to which they fled have long been celebrated. They are distinguished by their theological formulations, political thought, and artistic achievements. This volume offers an encompassing portrait of the Huguenot past, investigates the principal lines of historical development, and suggests the interpretative frameworks that scholars have advanced for appreciating the Huguenot experience.
