Chapter Summary

At the end of the second decade of the seventeenth century, the Synod of Dordt crowned the Contra-Remonstrant victory over the Remonstrants. In this chapter, the author intends to discover whether there were within the Contra-Remonstrant camp less positive or perhaps even negative assessments of the Synod. Ireneus Philalethius gave an evaluation of the Synod in two pamphlets: The second watchman bringing tidings of the night, that is, of the transfer of the Bahia, and The third watchman bringing tidings of the night, that is, of the dispersion of our fleet before Dunkirk. Willem Teellinck is called the father of the Further Reformation, a term used in scholarship of the history of church and piety. Teellinck had boldly asserted that the Synod had provoked Gods wrath by failing to promote the practice of piety.
