Audio recording of the Five Arminian Articles of 1610

Jacobus ArminiusThe Five Arminian Articles of 1610 were formulated by the followers of Jacobus Arminius after his death. They form part of the “Remonstrance” which Arminius’s followers and colleagues drew up and presented to Johan van Oldenbarnevelt, a Dutch statesman, in the summer of 1610. The Five Articles describe five positive points of belief to which Arminius’s followers, who adopted the name ‘Remonstrants’ and rejected the label ‘Arminians’, adhered.

For more information on the Remonstrance, which also detailed five points of Calvinist theology that the Remonstrants rejected, see William Birch’s nice annotated write up.

This recording was made from Schaff’s English translation of the articles, available to read online at CCEL.
