Biography

 Jacobus Arminius
Source: Wikipedia

Jacobus Arminius (aka Jacob Arminius, James Arminius, and his Dutch name Jacob Harmenszoon) was a Dutch theologian, best known as the founder of the anti-Calvinistic school in Reformed Protestant theology, thereby lending his name to a movement which resisted some of the tenets of Calvinism - Arminianism. The early Dutch followers of Arminius' teaching were also called the Remonstrants, after they issued a document containing five points of disagreement with classic Calvinism, entitled Remonstrantice (1610).

Arminius became a professor of theology at Leiden in 1603, and remained there for the rest of his life. The theology of Arminianism was not fully developed during Arminius' time, but was systematized after his death and formalized in the Five articles of the Remonstrants in 1610. The works of Arminius (in Latin) were published at Leiden in 1629, and at Frankfort in 1631 and 1635. After his death the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619) judged his theology and its adherents anathemas and published the five points of Calvinism (later knows as TULIP) as a point-by-point response to the five points of the Arminian Remonstrants.

Jacobus Arminius, a 16th century, Dutch Reformed theologian, had a profound impact on John and Charles Wesley, and consequently contemporary Protestantism. But Arminius is perhaps best known as the father of Arminianism--a theological position which challenges Calvinism. Yet, Arminius' own work is often neglected. This three volume set, the Works of James Arminius, attempts to fix that neglect. It brings together some of Arminius' most important works, such as the "Declarations of Sentiment" (volume I), his commentary on Romans 7 (volume II), his letters (volume III), and "Nine Questions" (volume I). It also contains a variety of interesting, but lesser-known treatises as well. As a whole, these volumes will challenge the way you believe; they contain more than simply critiques of Calvinism, but also subtle and instructive theological ideas. The Works of James Arminius shows that Arminius should be studied along with other great theologians such as St. Augustine, St. Anselm, St. Aquinas, and Calvin. Ideal for anyone interested in the reformation or Arminianism, the Works of James Arminius is an instructive and important text.
