dc.description This was the state of information when Marti compiled his edition and also when this lecture was delivered in May 2009. At the autumn 2009 meeting of the Presbytery of Europe in Lausanne, however, Felix Allender of the Genevan congregation told me of a letter of 09 July 2009 which he received from the Director of the Landesbibliothek informing him of the existence of another copy in the Henri- Arnaud-Haus/Waldensermuseum in Ötisheim. en

dc.description.abstract The article aims to investigate the Calvin’s Genevan Service Order. It focuses on the question how the Psalter Calvin shaped the worship of the Reformed Church in Geneva. The article follows the critical edition of the Genevan prayer in Calvini Opera Selecta and in the German Studienausgabe as the two main published editions of the Genevan order with its related texts. The article shows that Calvin adhered to the general line of the Swiss and Upper German Reformations. It explores the understanding of worship refl ected in the Genevan Service Order and the specifi c signifi cance of its musical aspect. The article illustrates why Calvin gave the psalms the place he did in Genevan Reformed worship. en
