Ca. 45 Arminian ministers who 1610 addressed a 5-art. remonstrance to the States Gen. of Holland and W. Friesland stating their differences from Calvinism. Calvinists presented a counter-address and were called Counter-Remonstrants. The remonstrant arts. were condemned at the Syn. of Dordrecht* 1619; remonstrants, whose leaders included S. Episcopius* and H. Grotius,* were deposed, imprisoned, banished, but permitted to return 1630. See also Arminianism; Bogermann, Johannes; Faukelius, Hermann; Gomarus, Francis(cus); Netherlands, 5.
