Chapter Summary

Nijenhuis emphasizes that although Saravia's positions &t;did not differ on any essential point&t; from mainstream Reformed positions; he was ultimately more at home in the emerging Anglican &t;via media&t;. The Anglicans had found a desirable mean between the errors of Rome and the radicalism of certain Protestant movements. On the contrary, the fundamental premise of Saravia's thinking and behaviour was the original accord between the unity of the Church and the purity of its doctrine. In the &t;conversation&t; between Saravia and Hortensius the exact relationship between human justification and sanctification was left vague. The ministers even felt that by issuing the proclamation the States had made it harder for them to legitimize the Reformed Church as the true Church. In the invitation to the &t;principal towns&t;, requesting that the city governments in question deputize one of their numbers to attend the proceedings on 24 October, the old formula was retained.

Keywords: Church; Hortensius; human justification; Nijenhuis; Protestant movements; radicalism; Saravia
