The International Synod of Dordt (1618-1619)

Contents, Contexts, and Effects, 17th – 21th Centuries

The Synod was revoltionary and had a great and lasting effect on Protestantism, culture and society; not only in Europe but also in Asia, Africa and America. And of course in the Netherlands, which has been regarded since as a Calvinist country.

The whole European Calvinist family was represented in Dordrecht 400 years ago. The meeting lasted no less than 180 sessions! Trade, migration and missions spread its mental legacy around the world from the 17th century on till now.
