AN ILLEGAL MANUSCRIPT COPY OF HUGO GROTIUS' ORDINUM HOLLAADIAE AC WESTFRISIAE PIETAS (1613) EDWIN RABBIE The Hague In the year 1613, the Dutch Reformed Church was a hotbed of con- flicts. A small group of ministers, calling themselves Remonstrants, tried to obtain recognition for their dissenting point of view regarding predestination and grace. The majority of the States of Holland, lead by the mighty Grand Pensionary, John van Oldenbarnevelt, supported their endeavours. This only resulted in the Remonstrants becoming more suspect in the eyes of the orthodox. For the States of Holland had seriously disgraced themselves by pushing through at all costs the appointment of the controversial theologian Conradus Vorstius as a professor at Leyden University. The fact also that the Remonstrants were trying to win King James of England over to their cause was also a source of major unrest. When in April and May of the year 1613 a conference was held in London on a fishing conflict between Dutch and English delegations, Hugo Grotius, Judge Advocate of the States of Holland, was one of the members of the Dutch delegation.
