Chapter Summary

When the Leiden Professor of Theology Jacobus Arminius died in August of 1609, Hugo Grotius wrote a Latin poem of 86 scazontes (limping iambics) to commemorate him. His poem was published in two pro-Arminian pamphlets of 1609 with Latin writings by various authors. This chapter outlines the social and historical context in which the poem appeared in both the Dutch Republic and England. It illustrates the points of view about matters of theology that the readers of Grotius's poem held. An analysis of the text of the poem establishes what point of view the poet put across to the readers. Finally it is possible to determine how and to what extent this poem was used to advocate the Arminian case in the Dutch Republic and in England.
