The Synopsis Purioris Theologiae, a textbook in systematic theology, originated as a series of disputations held in Leiden University between 1620–1624. In presiding over a cycle of disputations, the Leiden professors Johannes Polyander, Andreas Rivetus, Antonius Walaeus, and Antonius Thysius continued a tradition from before the Synod of Dort. This article discusses the original academic setting of the disputations, shows that the cycle and its four repetitions replaced a similar cycle with repetitions that started in 1596 under Franciscus Junius Sr., and that the order of subjects was agreed on beforehand.The professors composed the theses and were responsible for the final text of the Synopsis.
