The Literature of the Arminian Controversy

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 gives an overview of the history and development of the Reformed Church in the Dutch Republic, from its establishment during the days of the Revolt to the controversies over religious toleration between Dirck Volckertsz Coornhert, and his opponents within the Reformed Church in the later decades of the sixteenth century. It reviews the current historiography on Calvinism and Arminianism and explains the fundamental points on which the theology of Jacobus Arminius diverged from the consensus within the Reformed Church on questions such as predestination, the role of the confession and catechism, and the power of the civil magistrate in church affairs.

Keywords:   Dutch Revolt, Reformed Church, Calvinism and Arminianism, predestination, toleration, Dirck Volckertsz Coornhert, Jacobus Arminius
