Abstract

The article deals with Grotius’ involvement in the Remonstrant-Contra-Remonstrant struggles in the Netherlands. It is pointed out that Grotius’ involvement is to be considered mainly as due to his political responsibilities and his fervent search for peace and tolerance both in church and state. Although theologically on the side of the Remonstrants, he cannot be regarded as a Remonstrant in a full sense of the word. His interests lay elsewhere, especially since he was increasingly preoccupied with the unity of Christianity as a whole. In this light, the article traces some Remonstrant appreciations of Grotius. Special reference is made to the relationship between Grotius and Episcopius and the difference in their views on Christian unity.
