Synod of Dort (1618-1619)

A national synod of the Dutch Reformed Church convened in Dordrecht (Dort), Holland, to settle disputes arising over followers of Jacobus Arminius. Together with many international delegates, the synod affirmed the use of the Heidelberg Catechism and the Belgic Confession and crafted five articles, the Canons of Dort, distinguishing doctrines on sin and God’s sovereignty in salvation from the views of the Remonstrants.
