Geneva was forced to pay Bern substantial military reparations; moreover, it struggled to reclaim the vidomnat. Only in August 1536 was its Burgrecht with Bern renewed. In 1538 it was rumoured that Bern proposed to keep Geneva as an ‘open city’, that is, without defensive walls. Ineptly conducted negotiations with Bern in 1539 by the so-called Articulants resulted in several Genevan villages passing into Bernese hands. Such disputes continued until 1544. Despite the Reformation mandate of May 1536 Farel and his new acolyte Jean Calvin encountered opposition, and were dismissed in 1538, though readmitted three years later. Calvin’s vision of Reform brought him into conflict with Bern.

Keywords:   reparations, vidomnat, Geneva as ‘open city’, Articulants, Farel, Calvin, Reformation mandate, renewal of Burgrecht with Bern, religious disagreement with Bern
