241 Rieuwertsz, the noted publisher of 'heretical' works. The blasphemous, corrupting and Socinian treatise was banned by a decree of the Court of Holland on 19 July 1674,2 following numerous complaints by ecclesiastical bodies.3 Not surprising, then, that the Amsterdam consistory was anxious to avoid or counteract the publication of the work in the vernacular by any means it could. Jan ten Hoorn, like his brother Timotheus not a man of many scruples (for exam- ple, his name appears on the schout's roll as early as 1678 for violating his bookseller's oath and printing 'disreputable libels')4, probably decided to make the best of a bad job and got off the hook by sticking to his promises to the governors of the Reformed Church. The first Dutch translation of the work that I know of dates from 1694 and is by Jan Hendriks Glazemaker. The title of this work is De Rechtzinnige Theologant. I have discovered nothing more about the letters from Delft referred to, nor in- deed about the Delft aspect of the affair at all. However, I find that R. B. Evenhuis has written briefly about the Jan ten Hoorn affair.5 5 G. F. L. PEETERS Book
