Apart from all his other activities, the Dutch humanist Dirck Volckertszoon Coornhert (1522-1590) turns out to have been a theologian who, as such, deserves much more attention than he is given nowadays. This point has become clear by an analysis of some passages from Coornhert’s main theological work . In particular, his theories of free will versus necessity and of divine permission are explained. The latter is shown to be standing in the medieval scholastic tradition.
