     [1913 Webster]
  
     Geneva Bible, a translation of the Bible into English, made
        and published by English refugees in Geneva (Geneva, 1560;
        London, 1576). It was the first English Bible printed in
        Roman type instead of the ancient black letter, the first
        which recognized the division into verses, and the first
        which omitted the Apocrypha. In form it was a small
        quarto, and soon superseded the large folio of Cranmer's
        translation. Called also Genevan Bible.
  
     Geneva convention (Mil.), an agreement made by
        representatives of the great continental powers at Geneva
        and signed in 1864, establishing new and more humane
        regulation regarding the treatment of the sick and wounded
        and the status of those who minister to them in war.
        Ambulances and military hospitals are made neutral, and
        this condition affects physicians, chaplains, nurses, and
        the ambulance corps. Great Britain signed the convention
        in 1865.
  
     Geneva cross (Mil.), a red Greek cross on a white ground;
        -- the flag and badge adopted in the Geneva convention.
        [1913 Webster]
