Overview

In 1621, two years after their hopes for free and open debate were dashed at the Synod of Dort, the peers and students of Jacobus Arminius published the Confession or Declaration of the Pastors, which in the Belgian Federation were known as the Remonstrants. The first and perhaps most important of Arminian confessions, this document was composed by Simon Episcopius and then approved at a gathering of Remonstrant pastors. It provided not only a defends the Arminian “five points” condemned at Dort, but also succinctly declares the entire range of their theology. This fresh, unabridged translation of the 1621 Confession—the first since 1676—together with the original Latin, allows the contemporary reader to study the original language of the original Remonstrant leaders without the intervening interpretations of either their opponents or later admirers.
