Reformed Theology: Sources, Development and Context

Prof. H. van den Belt joined the Faculty a s professor by special appointment in Reformed Theology: Sources, Development and Context on 1 September 2012. This chair was established by the Reformed League in the Protestant Church in the Netherlands.

The professor’s teaching and research aim to help acquire more in-depth knowledge of the theology of the Reformed Reformation, inasmuch as it a) emerged from Scripture, the works of church fathers and medieval theologians, b) evolved in relation to other movements within Western Christianity, c) is relates to the context of (early) modern culture, and d) influenced later Reformed theology.


The focus is on the Reformation and Reformed orthodoxy (sixteenth and seventeenth centuries). The study of the history of Reformed theology serves Reformed Theology today by shedding light on its roots, its distinct character and development, and its relationship to the cultural context.
