The Articles of the Synod of Dort


Presbyterian Board of Publication 1841

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In his introductory essay, Samuel Miller notes that the “convocation and proceedings of the Synod of Dort may be considered as among the most interesting events of the seventeenth century.” Not “merely a meeting of the select divines of a single nation,” the 1618–1619 synod was “a convention of the Calvinistic world, to bear testimony against a rising and obtrusive error; to settle a question in which all the Reformed churches of Europe had an immediate and deep interest.”

In this volume, British preacher and writer Thomas Scott presents the judgment of that year-long council in Dordrecht, convened to settle the controversy over Arminianism in Reformed churches. Scott presents the articles of the synod, translated from the Latin, along with a lengthy history of preceding events to add context to your study. Study this exciting period of the Reformation and explore the original fault lines of debates that have continued for centuries.
