What God Wants: Flight and Death in Sixteenth-Century Protestant Theology

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Through the study of the speeches and the treatises emanating from Geneva, such as the treaty Des Scandales of Calvin or the Traittés divers pour l'instruction des fideles of Pierre Viret, I would like to analyze the way the Protestant theologians address the believers to advise them in their choices: in case of persecution, is it necessary to proclaim the glory of God and to face martyrdom, or is it preferable to run away to Geneva, in order to escape the denial? The speeches of the ministers are situated between the diligent ideal of the total abandonment to God's will and an increasing pragmatism, as the situation of the Protestants in France is more and more critical: the glorious period of the burning fires is finished and during the darker wars, the Protestants keep on converting to Catholicism, terrified by the massacres. It is the rhetoric of persuasion of the Protestant theologians that I would like to study through their representation of the exile in the sixteenth century.
