Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of Arminius's theology viewed in the context of his time. It uses examples to show how God's justice and the question as to the authorship of sin to be a most pressing issue for Arminius to which he repeatedly comes back in polemical contexts. The chapter considers a number of starting points from Arminius's theology, namely his prolegomena. It focuses on the theological concept in which Arminius tightly encapsulates both his own view as well as the core of his objections to Calvin, Beza and their followers. This is the Duplex amor Dei, or twofold love of God. The chapter sketches out the fourfold decree structure of Arminius's doctrine of predestination, his variant on this doctrine which was intended to be fully consistent with the concept of God's twofold love.

Keywords: Arminius's theology; Beza; God's twofold love; Jacobus Arminius; John Calvin
