Nadere Reformatie

History[edit] The period and its representatives are known for their desire to apply the principles of the Reformation to their day – their homes, churches, and, indeed, all sectors of Dutch society in the seventeenth and early eighteenth century. In their balance and value of both orthodoxy as well as piety, the Nadere Reformatie
Nadere Reformatie
resembles English Puritanism and German Pietism.[2] In fact, Puritanism had much influence on the Nadere Reformatie. Many Puritan
works were translated into Dutch during this time. Moreover, many Dutch visiting students learned about Puritan
ideas from English universities.[3] The two leading figures of the period are a professor, Gisbertus Voetius, and a pastor, Wilhelmus a Brakel. Brakel's main work, the Redelijke Godsdienst, an explanation, defense, and application of the Reformed faith, has been translated into English.[4] Notable figures[edit]
