The Emergence of Pastoral Authority in the French Reformed Church (c.1555-c.1572)

17 April 2021

Gianmarco Braghi offers a broad overview of the issues and ambiguities connected to the implementation of the authority of the first generation of Geneva-trained French Reformed pastors and of their implications for the character and identity of the early French Reformed movement at large, using them as a prism for historical analysis of the transition to loose evangelicalism to a nascent synodal-consistorial network of Reformed congregations scattered across the kingdom of France.

Gianmarco Braghi, Ph.D. (1987) is an Alumnus of Trinity College Dublin. He is a member of the Foundation for Religious Studies (Bologna/Palermo) and Coordinator of the “Giuseppe Alberigo” European School for Advanced Religious Studies.
