Arminius on the Assurance of Salvation: The Context, Roots, by Keith D. Stanglin

By Keith D. Stanglin

Even though scholarship has taken care of, at the one hand, a few facets of Jacobus Arminius' theology, and nonetheless, the doctrine of insurance within the Reformed theologians of early Protestant orthodoxy, however right cognizance has no longer but been given to the intersection of those subject matters: Arminius' doctrine of insurance. With distinctive cognizance to formerly overlooked fundamental assets, this ebook bargains stimulating insights into the tutorial context of Arminius, and, besides a comparative research of his colleagues at Leiden college, explores new horizons in his doctrines of salvation and insurance. Arminius' look for actual insurance of salvation emerges as a decisive think about his recognized dissent from Reformed theology.

4–6. Equally important, but beyond the scope of this essay, is the political context of the Arminian debate. In addition to the information in Bangs, Arminius, a good survey of the political landscape is available in Jonathan Israel, The Dutch Republic: Its Rise, Greatness, and Fall, 1477–1806 (Oxford, 1995); Christine Kooi, Liberty and Religion: Church and State in Leiden’s Reformation, 1572–1620 [Studies in Medieval and Reformation Thought 82] (Leiden, 2000).

59 In addition, Arminius was particularly uninspired by Trelcatius’s locus on predestination and his attempt to consider it partly before the fall and partly after the fall. 62 However, based on the language cited above, it is quite clear that Arminius did not tolerate the view of Trelcatius. Having surveyed these men and their contact with Arminius, we can make some summary observations about the working environment in Leiden. First, it often goes unmentioned that the theological faculty agreed on the majority of theological topics; the differences they may have had on many topics would not have been unusual in any contemporary university, and either were slight enough to go unnoticed in disputations or were routinely considered to be indifferent matters.
