Going against the view that the Arminian troubles constituted a violent, but brief episode in the history of the Dutch Republic, Chapter 6 traces the development of pamphlets, poetry, and satire in the later 1620s to argue that the controversy left deep and lasting fault lines in Dutch religious, political, and literary culture. It follows the legal and juridical justification of the Oldenbarnevelt regime and its toleration policy, expounded in the works of Grotius, while showing at the same time how the Remonstrant church in exile gradually abandoned the idea of limited toleration within the Dutch Reformed Church, in favour of a full religious toleration including freedom of worship as well as freedom of conscience. The pamphlet war that raged in Amsterdam in the years 1627–30 illustrates how, almost a decade after the conclusion of the Synod of Dort, the Arminian controversy was anything but a closed chapter.
