McKee, Elsie Anne. 2016. The pastoral ministry and worship in Calvin’s Geneva. Genève : Librairie Droz S.A.


Elsie Anne McKee, Archibald Alexander Professor of Reformation Studies and the History of Worship, earned her Ph.D. at Princeton Theological Seminary and the Diploma in Theology from Cambridge University in England. Her research has focused on John Calvin‘s theology and ministerial practice, and the lay reformer Katharina Schuetz Zell. Besides Calvin and the Reformed tradition, themes of her courses include biblical exegesis, worship, and women‘s history in the Reformation, liturgical time, and prayer life (especially women‘s piety) through the centuries. McKee has been a guest professor in Europe (Goettingen) and Africa (Kananga, Democratic Republic of Congo where she was born and reared), and lectured on Calvin around the world. She is an ordained elder at Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church in Princeton, and serves with several North American organizations that support theological and medical work in the Congo.
