Chapter Summary

Judging by the correspondence and official proceedings at the end of the seventeenth century and the beginning of the eighteenth, one would think that Arminianism was a dangerous gangrene infecting the body of the church in a number of Swiss cities. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, Arminian works made their way into the library of the Academy, the majority bought, but some also given by individuals, such as the five works of Philip van Limborch and Jean Le Clerc that were given in 1702 by the pastors David Sartoris and Jean-Pierre Gallatin. In advocating the identification of theology with religion, and considering that the latter was threatened by the rise of a new skepticism, Turrettini looked on theology only as a reasonable apologetic aimed at proving the truth of a Christianity that was dogmatically unelaborated, fit to serve the irenic project for which he never ceased to work.
