The Form of Prayers and
Ministration of the Sacraments, etc.
Used in the English Congregation
at Geneva (1556)
The Genevan Book of Order was first published in English under the title of The Form of Prayers and Ministration of the Sacraments, etc., Used in the English Congregation at Geneva; and Approved by the Famous and Godly Learned Man, John Calvin. The text of the present edition is based primarily upon the published edition in The Works of John Knox, edited by David Laing (Edinburgh:James Thin, 1895), vol. 4, pp. 141-214. The present publisher has edited the text to reflect contemporary spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Bracketed words are supplied where needed to complete the sense of a sentence. Bracked words in italics are inserted following some antiquated terms or phrases, as a convenience for the modern reader.
