Abstract

In the 'genealogy' of Dutch national bibliographies there follows - after the Catalogus universalis by Broer Jansz and lists published by Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge between 1675 and 1684 - a hand-written booksellers catalogue by Pieter van der Aa in Leiden. It was copied, augmented and published in 1743 by his pupil Johannes van Abkoude. Publication was accompanied by conflicts with several rivals, like Bernardus Noordbeek in Amsterdam and Nicolaas Goetzee in Gorinchem. Van Abkoude defeated his colleagues' disputes thanks to the quality and public function of his work. It was not only intended for booksellers, but also for book lovers, especially for persons with a theological interest. Reinier Arrenberg, coming from a comparable religious lay culture, developed into a follower of the Christian but tolerant Dutch Enlightenment. Inspired by learned people and other socially involved individuals he himself promoted 'the education of the people' by composing, translating and publishing stories for young and old. His revised new edition of Van Abkoude's catalogue is characterised by the removal of all small publications, such as pamphlets, popular literature and religious or political controversial writings for the reason that they were no longer commercially important. The booksellers catalogues reflected the eighteenth-century developments of levelling up book prices and marketing copyrights. As precursors of national bibliographies the catalogues of Van Abkoude, Arrenberg and De Jong will keep their value.

This is the online e-book collection of Brill’s Series in Church History and Religious Culture (BSCH), containing all volumes, from the first volume in 1970 onwards. BSCH is a peer-reviewed book series devoted to the history of religion, church, theology, and culture. Based on a broad understanding of religious traditions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and their interconnections, the series focuses on the history of religious experiences, values, and ideas –of groups as well as influential individuals- in their intellectual, social, and political settings. The series emphasizes the interregional, transconfessional, and comparative dimensions of religion in its expression, mediation, consumption, and institutionalization. It contains monographs, source editions, collections of articles, and conference proceedings.
The collection also contains the predecessor of BSCH, the Kerkhistorische Bijdragen (vols. 1-21), which was never published in electronic format. Part of this series was a subseries with text editions of documents by prominent Anabaptists, Documenta Anabaptistica Neerlandica.

The Synod of Dordt (1618-1619), the international assembly which ended the yearslong dispute between Arminians and Calvinists, was a defining event in the history of the Dutch Republic. This collected volume presents new facts and analyses concerning the Synod, its context, and its legacy. It includes contributions on the Synod’s
international character (Genevan delegation, James Ussher), biased historiography ( John Hales and Walter alquanquall), scholasticism ( Johannes Maccovius), philosophical ramifications, and Arminian theology.

New, manuscript-based details about the formation of the Canons of Dordt are presented. Other papers examine the Canons' ascendency to confessional status, intentional pastoral style, and view on the salvation of infants. Finally, its reception in the Dutch context as reflected in prints and printed works is mapped out.
