Remonstrant Brotherhood

Remonstrant Brotherhood

The Remonstrant Brotherhood is a religious society in the Netherlands. It has its origins in the dissidence of Jacobus Arminius and the signing of the "Five articles of Remonstrance" against strict Calvinism by 44 ministers. The Remonstrants put forward five points proclaiming the responsibility of man, pre-ordination through foreknowledge of faith, and that Christ's death was sufficient for all (see Arminianism).

Today, the Remonstrance Brotherhood is a small organisation of 43 congregations.
