Chapter Summary

This chapter presents more detailed and cohesive portrait of Petrus van Mastricht. He was born in November 1630 and baptized on December 23 at Cologne, as the son of Thomas of Mastricht and Jeanne de la Planque. The twenty-five-year "German" period (1652-1677) following his study of divinity can be divided into four parts, Cologne and Xanten (Cleve) from 1652 to 1662, Glückstadt (Schleswig-Holstein) from 1662 to 1667, Frankfurt an der Oder (Brandenburg) from 1667 to 1670 and Duisburg from 1670 to 1677. Mastricht's time in Duisburg (1670-1677) shows continuity in his work, the Hebrew teaching, the theological publications in the form of a book and disputations, both characterized by his fourfold approach (exegesis, doctrine, elenctic, and practice), and a major philosophical work against Cartesianism.
