Chapter Summary

After proposing a typology of authorship positions, this chapter attempts to present all the evidence in Arminius's case for and against professorial authorship. It considers and responds to recent studies that are related to authorship. The chapter intention is to demonstrate why it is safe to conclude that Arminius is the primary author of the disputations, and hence that these documents are reliable sources for understanding his theology. It presents and analyzes the available evidence relevant to disputation authorship. The chapter examines all the evidence that points to professorial authorship. It presents every piece of evidence that could possibly be employed against professorial authorship. The evidence surveyed consists of four arguments in favor of professorial authorship. Finally, the chapter concludes in favor of professorial authorship, based on the cumulative evidence of all four arguments, are sufficient to make the case that the public disputations of Arminius were composed by him.

Keywords:arguments; Arminius; authorship; authorship positions; disputations; evidence; professorial authorship
