A Study of Calvin's Liturgy at Strasbourg

Once again, click on the title of this post to be magically whisked away to a thought provoking article on Calvin's order of worship while at Strasbourg. It is argued that this order is to be taken as the definitive representation of Calvin's liturgy and was used also at Geneva later. It is then compared to Bucer's Strasbourg liturgy in the German church (and found to be very similar). The greatest benefit in this article seems to me to be the thought-provoking comments on the particular order of the elements of worship as well as an appeal to Calvin's Institutes in order to gain greater insight into his liturgical ideas. Very good stuff all-in-all.
