It begins by demonstrating changes between Episcopius’ early theological works and Arminius’ writings, and then even greater changes in his mature theological work, Institutiones Theologicæ.

Editorial Reviews

«Mark A. Ellis has given us a meticulous analysis of Episcopius in the context of the Synod of Dort. I cannot imagine a finer source for the man or his times.
