(p.1) Introduction
The Literature of the Arminian Controversy

Freya Sierhuis

Oxford University Press

The introduction outlines the current debates on religion, politics, and print culture in the Dutch Republic, and places these within a wider context of recent developments in early modern intellectual history, such as the debates on the role of religion and politics in the early modern public sphere, and the discussions about the role of pamphlet polemics in religious controversy. It discusses a number of lacunae in the historiography, notably the lack of interest in the conflict between Calvinism and Arminianism in the existing literature on pamphlet polemics, and emphasizes the need for an approach that combines intellectual history, history of religion, and literary history and situates theological, juridical, and political treatises within a wider media universe of pamphlets, broadsides, poems, songs, and plays.

Keywords:   Dutch Republic, intellectual history, religious controversy, religion and politics, print culture, public sphere, Calvinism and Arminianism
