In April 1645, Maarten Schoock, professor of philosophy at the university of Groningen, declared that the Utrecht theologian Voetius and his accomplices had been responsible for the libel in Schoock's anti-Cartesian work Admiranda methodus (Utrecht 1643). In a futile attempt to safeguard himself against Voetius's prosecution, Schoock wrote a short defense, entitled Corte Memorie, in which he referred to several letters Voetius had written to him. This defense and four letters to Schoock have been rediscovered in the Utrecht Municipal Archives. They are published in this journal in two parts. In this issue we present Voetius's letter of 9 November 1641 o.s., and a letter by his eldest son Paulus Voet of 27 April 1645 o.s. Much as these two letters were not related to the Admiranda methodus, Schoock put them forward during his lawsuit with Voetius to show that Voetius's interference with the manuscript of the Admiranda methodus had not been an isolated incident.
