Christ's churches purely reformed a social history of Calvinism by Philip Benedict ( )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A synthetic history of Calvinism. It tells the story of the Reformed tradition from its birth in the cities of Switzerland to the unravelling of orthodoxy amid the new intellectual currents of the 17th century. As befits a pan-European movement, Philip Benedict's canvas stretches from the British Isles to Eastern Europe. The course and causes of Calvinism's remarkable expansion, the inner workings of the diverse national churches, and the theological debates that shaped Reformed doctrine all receive attention. The English Reformation is situated within the history of continental Protestantism in a way that is designed to reveal the international significance of English developments. An examination of Calvinist worship, piety and discipline permits an assessment of the classic theories linking Calvinism to capitalism and democracy. Benedict aims to paint a vivid picture of the greatest early spokesmen of the cause, Huldrych Zwingli and John Calvin, and to restore many lesser-known figures to their rightful place. His work offers a model of how to think about the history and significance of religious change across the long Reformation era

The faith and fortunes of France's Huguenots, 1600-85 by Philip Benedict ( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During the years between the end of the Wars of Religion and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, France's Huguenots enjoyed three generations of relatively stable religious toleration, even though they faced constant solicitations to convert to Catholicism and an erosion of their civil rights. These pioneering essays explore fundamental questions about the Huguenot community - the largest Calvinist minority in seventeenth-century Europe - during the years when the Edict of Nantes defined the terms of its existence." "Benedict's essays delve deeply into untapped archival materials and use methods drawn from horizons as varied as historical demography, the history of the book and the history of mentalities." "These essays will prove of interest to all those concerned with the long-term consequences of the European Reformation, not to mention those simply fascinated by the outlook and experience of a group whose tragic history proved exceptionally rich in human drama."--Jacket

L'organisation et l'action des Églises réformées de France ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thirty-two documents from the formative years of the Reformed churches of France, many previously unpublished, are brought together in this meticulous edition. The volume includes all surviving acts of the provincial synods from this period, the requests and memoranda circulated among the churches or drafted for presentation to the crown by the deputies of the provincial synods, the earliest known consistory register of a French Reformed church, the earliest known liturgical and administrative regulations of individual churches, and the decisions of the Protestant-controlled 1562 Estates of Dauphiné, rightly called the best indication of the system of church-state relations that the Protestants would have established throughout France had they been successful in effecting a Reformation of the entire kingdom. Fascinating, little known, and mutually illuminating, these documents shed striking new light on the situation, operation and political action of the early French Reformed churches. The documents are richly annotated and preceded by a 100-page introduction that is an important scholarly contribution in its own right. This is an essential resource for all interested in French Protestantism, the origins of the Wars of Religion, or the early history of the presbytero-synodal system subsequently adopted by many Reformed churches"--Publisher's website
