Synod of Dordrecht

   In 1618–1619, a national synod was convened in Dordrecht to discuss the issue of the Arminian inter pretation of John Calvin’s theology. The Arminians, or Remon strants, were excluded from the orthodox church. The synod also decided to promote a new Dutch translation of the Holy Bible (Statenbijbel, 1637). At the same time, the Presbyterian principle was confirmed as a basis of the Dutch Calvinist ecclesiastical or ganization: consistory, classis, and regional synod (Dordtse Kerkorde).
