Emden and the Dutch Revolt

This chapter examines the impact the foundation of Dutch congregations in London, England, had on the situation of Protestants in the Netherlands. During this period in the 1550s, arrested Protestants in the Netherlands corresponded with London suggesting that the first exile church took its missionary role very seriously. When the London Church was closed, the role of the mother Church was transferred to Emden, Germany. The evangelical movement in Emden started slowly and became a significant force in the 1560s.
