KAYAYAN, E.. Calvin between facliis brevitas, confessio, and institutio: Instruction of faith in Geneva. Koers (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.74, n.4, pp. 619-642. ISSN 0023-270X.

This article focuses on catechetical instruction in Geneva under Calvin, taking the 1537 "Instruction" and the 1545 "Catechism" as objects of study. The relationship among three key notions -Calvin's own ideal of striving for brevity and simplicity on the one hand, the notions of "confessio" and "institutio" on the other hand - serves as catalyst to approach the nature of this catechetical instruction. After a historical overview of the circumstances amidst which the above-mentioned writings were produced, a comparative study of their internal organisation leads to the assessment of Calvin's method of theological exposition when dealing with the law and the Apostle's Creed.

Palavras-chave : Calvin; catechism; confession; Institution.
