By Keith D. Stanglin

Even if scholarship has handled, at the one hand, a few facets of Jacobus Arminius' theology, and however, the doctrine of coverage within the Reformed theologians of early Protestant orthodoxy, however right realization has no longer but been given to the intersection of those themes: Arminius' doctrine of insurance. With certain awareness to formerly overlooked basic resources, this e-book deals stimulating insights into the tutorial context of Arminius, and, in addition to a comparative research of his colleagues at Leiden college, explores new horizons in his doctrines of salvation and coverage. Arminius' look for real insurance of salvation emerges as a decisive think about his recognized dissent from Reformed theology.

These lecture notes and comments often became the source for published commentaries on any of these texts. The lecture, inasmuch as it required little active participation on the part of the student, was incomplete without the second component 74 Otterspeer, Bolwerk, p. 162.

The essay is then divided into two more parts. Part two, “The Ontology of Salvation,” which includes chapters three and four, describes and analyzes certain features of Arminius’s doctrine of salvation. Chapter three, “Grace, Predestination, and the Ordo Salutis,” provides an overall survey of the soteriological issues in Arminius’s theology. Arminius continually stressed that predestination is the foundation both of salvation and of the certainty of salvation, and that the pastoral purpose of predestination is to effect assurance of salvation.

On 6 May 1603 a conference took place at The Hague to provide Arminius an opportunity to answer charges from Gomarus and defend his ortho- 19 See G. , trans. John Guthrie, with an intro. by T. O.
