Publisher's Description

The Belgic Confession is one of the most important and oldest doctrinal statements of the Reformed churches. Written in 1561, it became a confession of Protestant believers in the Netherlands in the face of persecution from the Roman Catholic government. Despite its importance, there has been no comprehensive study on the history and background of this confession in English, until now. This newest volume in the Texts and Studies in Reformation and Post-Reformation Thought series examines the confession's early history, author, revisions, authority, and its relationship to Calvin and Beza. It is a valuable contribution to the field of Reformation studies.
